Memorial Day is about remembering and honoring those who've served past and present. Remember those men and women who gave their blood, sweat and tears in defense of this country.
Honoring those who've paid the ultimate sacrifice. Men and women who never had the fortunate chance to return home and be amongst family and friends.
I look back on those days out in Iraq most especially, amongst my marines and fellow corpsman with great fondness. The highlight of my service. Some of the worst times of my life, but proud to have served with my marines and fellow corpsman of 1/7.
It's not only today that I honor and remember all of you. For some of us, memorial day is every day we are alive.
To my extended brothers. Brothers I've gained from this extended family of almost eleven years and counting, I am here for you and will always be. Thank you for being there for me.
Fortis Et Fidelis
