Hello friends. Here in America, we are celebrating Memorial Day. This is a special day to honor heroes who fought for our freedom and made the ultimate sacrifice.
Audubon, the town I live in, is one of the patriotic small towns in America. Audubon is the hometown of three Medal of Honor Recipients: Samuel M. Sampler, WWI; Nelson V. Brittin, WWII and Korean War and Edward C. Benfold, Korean War. Both Brittin (U.S. Army) and Benfold (U.S. Navy) have been honored by the U.S. Navy with vessels named in their honor, the USNS Brittin (2000) and USS Benfold (1994).
Here is our town memorial monument for multiple wars.
Please take a moment today to reflect on the freedom we have in America and how we came to have it. Spend time with your family, relax and enjoy this day.
