You may have seen this quote before.
"A veteran is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to 'The United States of America' for an amount of 'up to and including my life'."
On Memorial Day we honor those who paid that check in full.
Our local Boy Scout Troops place flags at the Veterans' Cemetary.
The graves of those who died for us.
While you're enjoying your holiday weekend, having a cook out or maybe heading for the pool, take a moment and give thanks.
