Memorial Day 2017
I remember and honor my uncle, Col. Richard Ambrose Walsh, III, who died while serving in the Air Force in Laos, and I’m thankful to all other Americans who have lost their lives in our military. Such bravery defies words and commands my unfailing gratitude. Until the day we have lasting world peace, we depend on people of principle to stand together against cruelty and injustice. I am humbled by the sacrifices that are made on behalf of us civilians, and I strive to be worthy of such generosity.
