As a nation we take today to honor the sacrifice of countless men and women that have bravely given their lives to protect this country and the freedom that America represents.
Today is much more than a Federal holiday. It is a day to remember the soldiers that sacrificed everything. It is a day to decorate graves of the fallen with flags and flowers as a symbol of respect. It is a day to remember the families left behind and the sacrifice they continue to make.
Folds of Honor is a tremendous organization that does just that. Its mission is to honor the sacrifice of these brave men and women by helping to educate their legacy. Since its founding in 2007, Folds of Honor has awarded over 7,500 scholarships to children and spouses of soldiers who have been killed or disabled while in active duty. You can learn more about Folds of Honor and ways you can become involved at www.foldsofhonor.org or www.facebook.com/FoldsOfHonor
May we as nation never become so engrossed in the noisy world around us that we forget the individuals and the families that have sacrificed it all.
God Bless America!
