This coming Monday is Memorial day, a day created to commemorate U.S. men and women who have died in military service to their country.
Most of us will take a holiday, yet far too many of us will forget the sacrifices that were made to give us this day off.
If you're a parent making holiday plans I encourage you to think about the families who have members serving in the military.
Pay them back by taking some time this Monday to explain to your youngsters the importance of the men and women who protect our freedoms.... including our ability to celebrate holidays.
By my count 305 Texans have died fighting terrorists since 911.
Lets make this a better east Texas by doing a better job teaching the next generation about the importance of these American heroes.
We salute all the men and women serving our country in the military. Click Here to upload your photos here so that we may pay tribute to them.
