Remember & Honor

Today we remember those who died while in active military service. We took our kids to the Omaha National Cemetary and read the numerous headstones. We noticed what branch they served in. What war(s) they fought in. We noticed if they were buried with their spouse. We noticed the somber man who went to visit a grave. We noticed the pennies/coins left on headstones. We took it all in. It’s humbling.

I hope we teach our children to be thankful for the freedoms we have in America. We have these freedoms because of brave military men and women. We remember those who fought and served.

ARLINGTON, VA – MAY 27: Mary McHugh mourns her slain fiance Sgt. James Regan at “Section 60” of the Arlington National Cemetery May 27, 2007. Regan, a US Army Ranger, was killed by an IED explosion in Iraq in February of this year, and this was the first time McHugh had visited the grave since the funeral. Section 60, the newest portion of the vast national cemetery on the outskirts of Washington D.C, contains hundreds of U.S. soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. Family members of slain American soldiers have flown in from across the country for Memorial Day. (Photo by John Moore/Getty Images)
