Saying "Thank You" Isn't Enough

As a child I never really understood the true meaning of Memorial Day.  In my circle of friends, it always marked the winding down of the school year and the countdown to the freedom that lie ahead in our wondrous summer.  Our freedom was just within sight. 


I'm not sure when it changed.  Was it was part of growing up and understanding the sacrifice of others?  Was it seeing the first Gulf War coming to life on an office television at my first 'real' job?  It doesn't really matter when it happened.  All that matters is that it did.

Thank you to all who have served and protected the United States of America.  You have provided us with a wonderful way of life.  Your sacrifices have given us so much.  We can never repay you for what you have given us.  We can only thank you.  And thank you just doesn't seem to be enough.
