We want to thank everyone who put together and attended the UFAF ITC the last few days. Our family had a priceless time and have many great memories to cherish. Congratulations again to all who received advanced ranks and special awards at our banquet.
Also.. congratulations to all competitors. If you won, take time to write down what you did correctly as well as what you need to correct for future competition. For those of you who did not take home a trophy this time, do the same. Remember that your performance was not a loss if you learn something positive from it.
We look forward to spending more time with everyone as possible at future events.
Today we honor and commemorate all of our fallen military warriors. Memorial day holds a special meaning for all of us, and for the families of the fallen it provides a profoundly proud and yet painful remembrance.
My father fought and was wounded in World War II in the Battle of the Bulge. I served in the U.S. Air Force in Korea. I am also an honorary Marine. My brother, Aaron, served in the U.S. Army in Korea.
Our brother, Wieland, served in the U.S. Army as well in Vietnam, where he paid the ultimate price on June 3, 1970. (His name is etched among the 58,000 fallen service men and women on the Vietnam Wall Memorial in Washington, D.C.) Wieland was posthumously awarded the Bronze Star with "V" Device (First Oak Leaf Cluster) for his heroism on Aug. 27, 1970.
Please keep our military men and women (and their families) who have and are serving our country, in your prayers.
Today is "Good Friday" or "Easter Friday" is the day that Christians around the world, commemorate the death of Jesus Christ on the Cross at Calvary. We believe this is the ultimate sacrifice that made salvation available to all of us. Thank you Jesus for your sacrifice.
