But for me, Memorial Day has special meaning because I remember those who have served us and who have gone before us and sacrificed their lives…
When I was a child I remember walking down Main Street, Warwick, NY in a parade. When I saw the American flag waving, I felt so proud to be an American.
Many years later I wanted to serve my country so I joined the United States Air Force. I followed both my parents, who had served, as well my brother, husband and many uncles who had served in World War II and the Korean War.
I was stationed at Clark Air Base, Philippines; Sembach Air Base, Germany, and Hanscom Air Force Base, Lexington, Massachusetts. I received the National Defense Service Medal in support of Operation Desert Shield/Storm.
To me, serving and assisting others has long been part of who I am. I truly honor those who are serving now and bless those who went before us.
