As families and friends come together to enjoy a long weekend on the eve of summer, we stop to remember those who have died defending the cause of freedom near and far. In total, over 1,354,000 soldiers have fallen in service of this worthy cause. And today, as we enjoy the comforts these men and women have purchased with their lives, we pause to honor them and pray for those whom they left behind.
A Walk Down Summer’s Memory Lane – Sail Portsmouth 2019
With Memorial Day marking the official unofficial start to summer here in The States, we thought it would be a perfect time to share some of our favorite memories from summers-gone-by as we look ahead to all this summer may have in store. Today, we’ll be looking back at last year’s Sail Portsmouth tall ships festival as we look forward to this summer’s event, featuring the CGC Eagle – a ship I haven’t seen in New Hampshire since I was a young child.
