    Salute to the forces!

     
    I just found out that today is Armed Forces Day and is a holiday celebrated in some parts of the US, if not all of it. I don't know how I missed it because both my parents served in the military and were proud of their service, this I know for a fact. Neither of them are here now. They are both buried at Pinelawn Memorial Cemetary in Farmingdale LI, NY.
    But I would like to take the time now to honor them and all the men and women that served in any branch of the Armed forces, in any area and in any capacity to keep us free, because this is no easy task, and doesn't seem to get easier with each passing day.
    God Bless you all, land, sea, air, etc.. and thank you.
