Today is so much more than the unofficial start of summer. On this Memorial Day, let us take a few moments to remember the brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice so that we can be free.
My walk this morning took me to my community’s little park that is named in honor of Lance Cpl. Garrett Gamble, who died a year ago in Afghanistan. I stood in front of the park’s sign and thought about how this brave, young, local hero was taken from his loving family much too soon. Thank you, Garrett. Rest in peace.
