...And I’m proud to be an American,
where at least I know I’m free.
And I wont forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.
This verse of the song comes to mind (and brings tears to my eyes) for me every Memorial Day. I am truly grateful for the men and women who gave it all, as well as those who served before or are serving now. (And, I am a very proud Mama of an Nevada Air Guard son!)
