It’s Memorial Day Weekend…

By Lee Samuels

It’s Memorial Day Weekend, a time to remember and say thank you to all who have served. Like President Obama says, a country must fight for its freedom.

Our father Richard served 7 years in World War ll. When he returned home he never spoke of the things he saw or did.

Our younger brother Ronald Lee used to build and drive racecars. He used to drive them at the Cecil County Dragway in Maryland. We wrote stories about him in a local hometown newspaper. 

He served in Viet Nam but contracted Agent Orange. He is missed every day by our family.

Practically hockey person – mother, dad or player – reading this knows of someone in the U.S. Armed Forces who has served.

Let’s take time this weekend to tell them thank you.
