Being a veteran myself I usually don’t make a big deal out of Memorial Day. I have difficulty trying to find the words as to what it means to me. I know what I feel but it is hard to describe it.

My time in the Navy as a Corpsman was unremarkable though without it I could not be as successful as I am today. As I have noted in the past my dad served in Viet Nam, my uncle was at Normandy in World War II and my grandfather was in the Navy in World War II and I am forever grateful for their guidance over the years.

I am thankful for the time that I served. I have a great life that, thanks to my military service, as it enabled me to achieve many things that I would not have had I not made that commitment. I have made friendships that will last forever they are more precious to me than material possession I could ever have.

I don’t celebrate Memorial Day in any overt way. I tend to reflect on my past experiences knowing that there are those that sacrificed far more than I ever will. Those experiences and relationships are the building blocks of who I am today.
