Remember those who work


As this holiday season comes upon us I would like everyone to take time at Christmas to think about the people who find that holiday, just another work day. We spend a lot of time in this country honoring our men and women in the armed forces, as well we should, but often forgotten in the shuffle are our everyday heroes who have dedicated their entire working lives to keeping us safe and sound. God forbid you should need them during the holidays, but if you do.
