Memorial Day and Rolling Thunder

May 25, 2012 at 5:54pm

Todd and I and our family would like to wish you all a happy Memorial Day weekend. We’d especially like to offer our best wishes to our friends in Rolling Thunder who will be taking part in their Ride for Freedom this weekend in D.C. as they do each year to honor our vets and specifically to bring awareness to POW/MIA issues. We were honored to join them last year.

 

We were both sad to learn that Preston “Jay” Fairlamb, Jr., one of the organizers of Rolling Thunder and someone who made us so welcome last year, tragically died in an accident last week.  Jay was a Vietnam vet, a retired New Jersey State Trooper, and a great American who will be dearly missed.  Please keep his wife, his children, grandchildren and his innumerable friends in your prayers.

 

On this Memorial Day weekend, may God bless our brave men and women in uniform.
