Memorial Day 2012

Once again Memorial Day is upon us, the day we memorialize those in our Armed Forces that made the ultimate sacrifice. I won't go on and on about how this not national bbq day or how most of the people in the United States give no regard to the true meaning of this day.

How can we expect them to? Less than 2% of us have actually served in the military and an even smaller percentage have given their lives. The common citizen has no frame of reference, no concept of what these individuals have done. They are immune to the constant buzz about "our heros in uniform" after 10 years of war. It has all become so normal so insignificant.

Those of us that have served need to keep the torch lit, we need to remember our brothers and sisters and educate those who do not.

One way we can do that is to donate to charities that keep our fallen warriors in the spotlight. There are many worthy ones but I choose to support the Special Operations Warrior Foundation

This organization helps the children of our fallen Special Operators achieve a college education. I can think of no worthier tribute than to support the families of those that have supported us.

Once again this year I am running an ultramarathon to raise money for SOWF please consider a donation by clicking on the link below

Memorial Day isn't just a day off
