Thank You to Our Military Heroes
May 2023 UpFront Newsletter
I’m grateful for the men and women in my family who have served our country through military service. My uncle was a Navy gunner aboard the SS Washington, which was hit by Nazi submarine torpedoes in the North Atlantic during the convoy supply runs in World War II. After ten harrowing days in the lifeboats in freezing water, they were rescued by a British ship off the coast of Norway. His stories about that time are fascinating and heroic.
On Memorial Day we salute those of you who have offered to give your all to defend the rest of us. May we all take some time over the holiday weekend to appreciate our freedoms, remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice and the friends and families who carry the cost of the loss of their loved ones all the days of their lives. God Bless all of you and God Bless America!
