Happy Memorial Day

We shall honor them always and give our thanks!

I hope every American remembers what a privilege we have been given in this country...our freedom. I had the great opportunity to meet several veterans of the Purple Heart this weekend during Memorial Day. They were young, they were old, yet each one of these heroes have given us Freedom.

Eating Military Style

Now you can eat this:

Heard, understood, acknowledged: A toothsome U.S. Army secret is about to go civilian. It's sweet. It crunches. It remains fresh for three years. And come June, the HooAH! Nutrition bar arrives on store shelves nationwide for red blooded Americans who fancy a Special Forces snack. Developed as a high energy combat ration for Army Rangers and U.S. Marines almost a decade ago at the Army Soldier Systems Center in Massachusetts, the HooAH! Name and formula officially have been licensed by a trio of California brothers who know a good thing when they see it. "Everybody respects the military, and everybody wants a part of the cutting edge technology," said Christian D'Andrea of Los Angeles, who bought exclusive rights to manufacture and distribute the bar with brothers Mark and Paul. "Retailers are really pumped," Mr. D'Andrea said.
