I know I just wrote a blog post about observing Memorial Day, but just don’t think I can say enough. For those who know me, I am fiercely patriotic. Ask anyone at your consignment RV store, PPL Motorhomes and they’ll tell you. Just look around our dealership and you’ll notice a sea of red, white and blue. There is no greater nation on Earth and no greater soldiers than those in our Armed Forces.
I found a great compilation video of soldiers surprising their loved ones with their return home that I wanted to share. There is a chance that you’ve already seen it, but it’s just as powerful every time I watch it. The saying goes: “it’s hard to be a soldier, but even harder loving one”. You can see the relief on the faces in the video that their soldiers are safe at home with them.
However, let’s not forget the real reason for this weekends celebrations and that’s remembering all of those who didn’t make it back home. The hundreds of thousands of Americans who gave their lives over generations of wars to secure our freedoms and solidify Democracy. This weekend if for them. It is for their family. It is for our country.
All of us at PPL Motorhomes could never express our gratitude with a simple, “Thank You”, but that will have to suffice for now. “Thank you”, the American Soldier, who has put yourself in harm’s way so we didn’t have to. “Thank you”, the American Soldier, who gave his, or her life so we wouldn’t have to. Finally, thank you families of our American Soldiers who have willfully sacrificed their loved ones so we didn’t have to sacrifice ours. Thank all of you.
