Here at Splinter and Things, Memorial day is a day of introspection. With over 21 years combined service, we appreciate the level of respect our brothers and sisters in arms deserve. While everyone is heading to the beach or firing up their grill in celebration for their freedom, we must not forget the brave men and women who came before us to ensure that freedom can be realized year after year. These brave men, who have stormed the beaches of Normandy, sweat and bled in the jungles of Vietnam, marched through the sands of Iraq, Kuwait, and the mountains of Afghanistan, and established dominance in every war since we started this experiment of a country almost 2 and a half centuries ago.
We give thanks to those souls lost so that others may live. Today is for them. As my late Uncle Greg used to say “Freedom Ain’t Free MotherF*ckers!” I’m posting these pictures and names on behalf of Xavier, Founder of Splinter and Things.
