Memorial Day

By taking time to remember our heroes, we honor the sacrifices made for the dreams of every American. May we never forget their courage and willingness to defend their fellow Americans.

My family's first US soldier was my ancestor Abraham Trostle (1740-1819). The last family soldier to give his life for our country was my uncle Philip Trostel. Thankfully, many of my family members have returned home safely after serving our country.

May this important holiday find you and your family safe and well. [where: 75230]
