As we prepare for the picnics, parades, BBQ’s and sidewalk sales, your Wocl Leydon Family would like to encourage you to take a moment to thank all of the men and women who proudly serve in our nation’s armed services. It is because of their unyielding commitment, uncompromising sacrifices and undying loyalty that we live in a country where we are free to express ourselves and practice our faith without persecution.
It is all too often that we are busy hustling and bustling around getting ready for the start of summer that we easily forget what this holiday is truly about. We forget that it is about the men and women who have served thanklessly over the course of the past 100+ years to protect us. We forget that it is about those men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in giving their lives as they loyally served us.
And, we forget that it is about taking time to thank them for all of their “gifts” to us. So, today at Wocl Leydon we want to do just that. We thank you for protecting us from external and internal forces of destruction and evil throughout our nation and around the world. Your experience, knowledge and courage are truly examples of how we should want all of our young people today and future generations to aspire to be.
As one of our many great President’s said it best, “As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter the words, but to live by them.” ~ John F. Kennedy.
From the entire Wocl Leydon Family – Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Have a safe and wonderful Memorial Day!
