On this Memorial Day, may we reflect upon and honor the sacrifice made by ALL of our fallen heroes. They’ve paid the ultimate price so that we may live in freedom today. Thank you is not enough.
For me, this day is especially difficult and heartbreaking as I honor my late husband SSgt Bryan Berky, killed in action by wounds sustained in combat in Afghanistan in September 2009.
As said in a moving article I read recently, “Memorial Day is meant to remind folks of the sacrifice borne by those who fell in battle in defense of the country, as well as their families. But once you lose someone in combat, Memorial Day bleeds across the rest of the calendar.”
Every day is your memorial day, babe. I will love you always.
