This is the day that we as Americans need to honor those who have given the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedoms that we cherish in everyday life. The freedom to enjoy our great sport of auto racing as race fans, race drivers, promoters, sponsors, and car owners. We pay tribute to all who are currently working to protect those freedoms today and into the future. We should never forget those who have gone on and also remember their families who also have made the sacrifices. Whenever any of us see or run into anyone who is in our armed forces Please take the time to Thank Them for their service and pray that they come home safely soon. Remember that this day is a day of remembrance for all veterans those who are still with us and those who are now in God’s care. We as Americans must “Never Forget”.
“God Bless America”
