As you head out to the links this weekend you can feel the freedom a golf course provides. Freedom from the daily grind, phone calls, minor crises at home, etc. Freedom to be where you want to be, when you want to be there. These freedoms come with a price. Memorial Day honors the ultimate price paid by our military men and women around the globe who laid down their lives in defense of the freedoms we often take for granted. I don't intend to pontificate of the respective merits of any of our leader's decisions or actions over time, just merely reminding us, average golfer included, that we are where we are because of the sacrifices of our military and their families.
When you see a veteran or active member of the military in public, try and take the opportunity to thank them for their service. The response you get will be heartfelt and honest. A smile instantly appears on their face. That little bit goes a long way in reminding them their efforts aren't unnoticed.
