Thanking Those Who've Made it a Holidy Weekend

As we're all enjoying our Holiday Weekend Jameel has taken a minute to help us recognize the sacrifice made by the members of our Armed Forces.

"The beauty and serenity of Virginia’s rolling hills and awe inspiring views of Washington D.C. clash with today’s reality of national loss, where grief is raw and in your face. You step over grass sods still taking root over freshly dug graves. You watch a mother kiss her son’s tombstone. Two soldiers put flowers and a cold beer next to the grave of a fallen buddy. A young son left a hand-written note for his dad. “I hope you like Heven, hope you liked Virginia very much hope you like the Holidays. I also see you every Sunday. Please write back!”

The rest is just as powerful.

I just want to take a minute to thank the guys I know, and everybody else for their sacrifice and devotion on our behalf.
