Memorial Day that keeps on Remembering

May 24, 2013 in God - Faith - Hope - Love

I know Memorial Day is a day to remember those who have fallen in time of war.  Family and friends attend parades and gathering for BBQ’s on the Memorial Day week-end and we all love to usher in the warmer weather and the summer season that follows. My husband and I wanted to make this Memorial Day more meaningful.

We have been curious about the “Wounded Warrior Project”.  War is such a tragedy and to think that so many have died for us and live with wounds for the rest of their lives is a very sobering reality.  We have taken the leap and signed up for the “Wounded Warrior Project” which for us is a monthly donation.

Our own children have not had to serve our country in this capacity so this is our way to say thanks and to remember what other families continue to go through. A monthly donation of this size is so very small in comparison to the service our vets have given to us.

 “Founded in 2003, WWP raises awareness and enlists the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members, helps injured service members aid and assist each other, and provides unique direct programs and services to meet their needs.”

Thanks to all our wounded warriors and to those who have given their lives. Thanks to your families for sharing you with us.
