To our honored dead:
I owe you a debt that can never be repaid. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you.
And to the survivors… may G-d lift your burdens, may He heal your heart by knowing that your loved one fulfilled a most noble calling.
Purim is just around the corner, and IDF soldiers break out into smiles when they get a gift basket from Connections Israel.
For $15 you can give a basket for one soldier. For $450 you can give an entire unit of 30 soldiers baskets.
Please consider this 501c3 charity in your giving.

Last week I posted my Memorial Day post – good thoughts, wrong date… somehow I had the date wrong mentally.
Thank you, from my generation, to all those who fought and died for this country.
I – we all – owe you.
