Dear Friends --
Many men and women have given their lives over the years in defense of the freedoms and way of life we, as proud Americans, enjoy today. The families of these brave people have also sacrificed a great deal; the loss of a loved one is a hurt that touches the depths of our very being.
This Memorial Day we once again stop, pause and give our deepest and most sincere "Thank you" for your sacrifice, and to ask for God's blessing to be upon those we have lost and those who remain behind.
Follows is a commentary by Benita Dodd "Memorial Day Thanks For Better Days After Battle Scars" of the Georgia Public Policy Foundation that is worth taking a few minutes to read.
May God continue to bless America this Memorial Day.
Representative Jeff Jones
