Memorial Day tribute to the troops

Staunton's Stonewall Brigade returns from Iraq, 2008.

American Soldier ... a tribute to the troops by Toby Keith leading into this Memorial Day weekend.

As we work in the yard or wash the car or go camping or catch the store sales, please pause to remember our military men and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice.

In Augusta County we have lost three U.S. Marines in Operation Iraqi Freedom:
Lance Cpl. Jason Redifer, 19, USMC, KIA, January 31, 2005
Lance Cpl. Daniel Bubb, 19, USMC, KIA, October 17, 2005
Lance Cpl. Daniel Morris, 19, USMC, KIA, February 14, 2007.
May we also remember those who are currently halfway around the world in the line of fire or stationed here at home or on standby when needed or who protect the homeland ... and may we never forget our veterans.

Here's sending up a prayer of thanks that we have people who care enough about this country to keep us safe from terrorism and protect our freedoms. They are our American heroes.

Reunited with families at the Staunton Armory....
