My Tribute to our Servicemen

I stop this morning to add my word of  thanks to each serviceman who has served our country since its amazing inception. Some have died in my defense. Some of you will carry painful wounds to your grave. Some are tormented by ghastly vision of war. All these that my loved ones and I may live in freedom and peace. Thank you. From the bottom of my heart, I sincerely speak these words.
Mary McHugh mourns her slain fiance Sgt. James Regan at the Arlington National Cemetery May 27, 2007, Memorial Day weekend. Regan, a U.S. Army Ranger from Long Island, was killed by a roadside bomb in Iraq in February, and this was the first time McHugh had visited the grave since the funeral. When he died, Regan was on his fourth combat deployment – twice in Afghanistan and twice in Iraq.

Still full of life and ready to be on the move, Shirley at 84 years old feels blessed to have lots of energy and to be full of optimism. She was married to Jerry for 63 years, and grieves yet at his death in August of 2019. They have 4 children, 13 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren...all beautiful and highly intelligent--of course. :)
