Memorial Day

It’s Fleet Week here in New York City.  As you walk around, you can see the men and women who serve in the Navy and the Marines, in their uniforms, just enjoying the sights and being able to spend time with their friends, family and loved ones.  It makes me smile to them so relaxed and happy, because there is the knowledge that they could be deployed to the Iraq or Afghanistan someday soon. 

With that in mind, I would just like to thank those who are in the armed services.  You devote your time, your family and your life to defend this great nation of ours.  Memorial Day is not just the holiday weekend where we travel to and from the beach and enjoy picinics and barbeque in the backyard.  It is the day we honor those who have served in uniform.  In combat and in peace time. On land, on sea, in the air, behind a desk, or in the mess hall feeding the troops.   I salute you.  Happy Memorial Day.

Regards,

Tracey
