As a United States Marine Corps veteran , I have to think about what exactly happened while I was in uniform and how grateful I am to have survived my time active. It's an opportunity to zero the focus on what really matters on this particular holiday. It's not necessarily one of those times to roll out a sale in my eyes, although I offer any vet 25% off of their scheduled session and products, but that's everyday. I don't even advertise that. (although I should), and that will always be there for my brothers and sisters. Today I salute every single fallen service member and all of the gold star and white star families that lost loved ones and continue to serve and support our community without fail in the times of need . Vietnam and WWII were ferocious wars that left voids that can never be filled. Enduring Freedom was no different. Not enough can be said about the valor of our Active and Reserve members that uphold the oath everyday to secure the blessings of liberty.
I'm thankful that my father made it through Vietnam and Korea and my Grandfather before him safely out of Europe in WWII. "Pop" My grandfather passed over 20 years ago, and we will always honor and remember him. Dad and I are , in the words of Commandant of the Marine Corps, General David Berger "living memorials". As are my fellow brothers and sisters in arms that served and live today. No matter what it is you are going through, remember you are a living and are here for a reason. You made it. Possibly against the odds around you, whether you feel like you deserve it or not, you made it home. You are here today and I'm thankful for you. Those that have fought on foreign and domestic soil that gave the ultimate sacrifice live through our memories and the honor . Have a blessed , safe Memorial Day. We're just taking it easy over here. no shenanigans as of this evening of course the day is still young,You guys be safe. Take Care
