                      We honor The GOLD STAR Families and remember The FALLEN.


In Remembrance to Those Veterans and Sacrificed-All in past wars, as well as those who Died in current battles, such as Iraq and Afghanistan, let’s take a purposeful moment to those that gave their lives for each of us to live, move and have our life as citizens of the United States of America! 


Personally, Monday May 28th is close to my heart again. I am so grateful to have known WW II Veteran Jack Green, father to Jack Green.  Memorial Day-2017, Jack sat with me and comforted me, grieving the recent death of my 27 year-old grandson, U.S. Army Travis Selinsky, Afghanistan.

        This Memorial Day 2018, we’ll honor Jack Green as he passed away late Summer last year, too.



        So many more, we wish we could call-out each individual.
