Memorial Day

This post is to honor and thank our service people who defend our rights and protect us, both the fallen hero's and the men and women who on a daily basis work to keep us free and make us proud to be Americans!

Like so many other families, our family has suffered the loss of a loved one while serving in the Armed Forces. I was only two when my Uncle Ron died in Vietnam but grew up with wonderful stories of a boy who was full of pranks and all kinds of mischief.

PFC Ronald Shier was a member of Charley Company, 1st Battalion, 4th Marines. He was killed on March 3, 1969 from a sniper shot.

"He which hath no stomach to this fight let him depart. But we in it shall be remembered. We few, we happy few, we band of brothers!! For he today, that sheds his blood with me, shall always be my brother”. Rest in peace brave soldier, you have not been forgotten. (W.Shakespeare)

God bless all of our service men and women and their families and God Bless America!
