Remembering Our Fallen Soldiers.


Lest we forget...


"Your silent tents of green We deck with fragrant flowers;
Yours has the suffering been, The memory shall be ours."
~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

For the soldiers and their families, thank you.
It is your sacrifice that has allowed me to experience freedom and joy in this great country.

God Bless America.
