Memorial Day Weekend

The big Memorial day three day weekend this weekend! Lots to do, got a major work party at the CWSA range tomorrow, a steel challenge match on Sunday, e-Postal targets to shoot on Monday (Gotta get 'em sent in by Monday night!). Got a bunch of reloading to do. Some of you will be firing up the BBQ, maybe getting together with friends..........

That's all well and good, but let's not forget what this holiday is all about. Let's not allow Memorial day to get lost in the hustle and bustle of other activities. When you sit down to a big Memorial day dinner, when you bite into that big juicy burger fresh off the grill, reflect for a minute on the men and women who have given their lives so that we could have the freedoms that we currently enjoy. Think about setting an extra plate and an empty chair at the dinner table as a reminder of the people who have paid the ultimate price to secure our freedoms.

Whatever else you do this weekend, never lose focus on what the Memorial day holiday is all about.

Never Forget.......

Thanks for remembering our vets.

I'd like to include a hearty "THANK YOU" to all currently serving & a wish that they get home safely.
