The true meaning of Memorial Day.

Welcome to Memorial Day weekend.  This is a special time for me, the son of a decorated United States Marine.

My dad fought for our flag.  He was shot while doing it.  He survived.  Thank you God.

I'm here because of his bravery, and because he was smart enough to hunt down my beautiful, sweet mother in California while he recovered from his war battles.

My uncle survived when his plane crashed while he was a bomber pilot for the US Army Air Corps.  He went on to become a well respected attorney, District Attorney, County Judge and NY State Supreme Court Justice.

These men, like so many of our heroes who have passed away, risked everything because of their love for the United States of America.  I thank them, and all veterans and current members of our armed services for their bravery and sacrifice.

I end my radio show everyday by saying these words: God bless our cops and God bless our troops.

On this Memorial Day, please share this with your family, friends and those who understand what this solemn holiday is all about
