    1. Oh Caleb, I am so sorry. My husband and I just finished watching the Memorial Day Concert on TV. I am moved by the stories of brave men and women who set aside everything for love of country. I will not take for granted the cost of freedom. I am very thankful and blessed by those who serve in our military.
