Today is Memorial Day in the United States, and our offices are closed as we honor and remember those who gave their lives in service to our country. (Photo credit: iStockPhoto.com)

This post is also dedicated each year to the memory of David Leimbach, (brother of our friend and colleague Jeff Leimbach), who died three years ago in combat in Afghanistan.

Just a humble word of thanks to the dedicated men and women of our armed services and to all those who came before them who laid down their lives to protect the freedoms we enjoy each day.

P.S. If you have a moment; Moose Peterson has a very fitting post which features not only some amazing World War II Aircraft Facts & Statistics, but some wonderful aviation photos of these warbirds in action as well. Here’s the link.
