Beloved, this weekend is dedicated to the men and women who serve courageously in the United States Armed Forces. At this time of the year, I think of my dad’s 20 years of service in the U.S. Marine Corps, 1957 to 1977. Still alive and well at the tender age of 74, my dad’s encouragement and natural example in our home has helped me to become the man that I am. This weekend, into Monday, is more than just another weekend, with a day off from work, it is to be a memorable time of reflection, honor, and enjoyable time with family and friends.
