Memorial Day | amwz photography


I know traditionally Memorial Day is a day to remember those who have died in service to our country. What if we took the time to say THANK YOU to those service men we see around town? These proud women and men enter service to our country to allow us the freedoms we hold so dear... an easy political process. No matter how flawed we see it we have a process that is truly nonviolent as compared to the rest of the world.
Freedom of speech.

As these fine men and women serve our country they give up so much. Time with family.
These families need our prayers to continue on finding new routines without that person in their family.

They count down the days as to when their loved ones return and the soldiers themselves countdown as to when they will enjoy these freedoms they work tirelessly towards. So, as we enjoy a fresh slice of watermelon, an ice cold beer, a simple game of horseshoes remember all those who have fought for the freedoms we all hold so dear. Remember the families as they pray for a safe return. Remember those who lost their lives in battle while defending our freedoms.

Thank YOU, families, for being generous of your family.
Thank YOU, soldiers, for granting me the freedoms I have and my children have!

I LOVE these images! Thanks for sharing them. I have two brothers who serve in the air force and several friends. My Dad is also retired air force and served in two wars. We are blessed to have our military out there protecting our freedoms. May God continue to bless those who serve and our country. God bless the USA!!!
