Today is Memorial Day, a day to honor the dead from all the wars of our country.
My book Spring House: Book 1 in the Westward Sagas tells the story of my ancestor Adam Mitchell, a Patriot of the Revolutionary War. He survived the war, but many of his relatives, friends, and neighbors gave their lives for the cause.
I’m proud to say that members of my family have fought in every US war. We all wish for peace, but I am thankful and proud of our brave military members who stand up for what is right and lay their lives on the line to defend their country.
Today I will remember and honor all who have given their lives in the service of our country.
