This holiday weekend thought came at the end of an invitation to Scott Lingamfelter's beach party. I don't live near Dumfries and expect this invitation is extended to anyone who wants to help raise campaign funds for Ken Cuccinelli, so I was tempted to post the invitation here also...but that feels rude. Instead I'll recommend visiting http://scottforva.com/, and share only the kind thought:
" While we are enjoying fireworks, cookouts, and family this Holiday weekend, there will be young Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen deployed all around the world that will be on patrol, at watch, on the flight line, in a foxhole, or risking their lives saving others. Take a minute when you are offering your blessing to remember that freedom is not free and there are those ready-right now-to give the full measure of devotion so we remain free. They are the best we have and don't forget it.
God Bless America."
