    With the passing of Memorial Day Weekend a lot of thoughts came to my mind. First and Foremost, Remembering our troops and "Thank" them for all that they have done for us. They have all volunteered to defend OUR Country so that we have the right to live as we do. They have chosen to risk their lives in a foreign land so that our children are safe here at home. Drop them a line at www.LetsSayThanks.com also, every year we lose some of our Fellow Cruisers. Take a minute and keep them and their Family's in your Prayers. Believing in God is another American "Right". Let's put Prayer back in our daily life!
