On this Memorial Day weekend, we were privileged to visit the Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery with our son, Lt. Aaron Burch (USN).  While I viewed the rows upon rows of graves I realized that many of these were killed in action while most served with honor and returned to live out their days in the freedom that they themselves had fought for.  I don't know the story of YN1 Higginbotham, but from his young age, it could be that he lost his life while on duty for us.


As we reflected on the ultimate sacrifices made by those killed in action, we could see at the mouth of the bay a United States nuclear submarine returning from duty somewhere in the world.  The crew of that submarine are voluntarily and intentionally serving us and the freedoms we love. 


We mourn for the lost and the families that miss them.  We pray for those families that will live day to day thinking about a loved one lost to war.  We pray for those that are still serving.
