Lincoln, NE May 25, 2020 (TBIF NEWSWIRE) – The Basket Is Full, Inc. (TBIF) a Midwest Natural Food Manufacturer; today issued the following article to customers:
On this Memorial Day — the special day we honor those who have given their lives during military service to our country.
Since 1900, more than 35 million men and women have served in World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, the Persian Gulf, Afghanistan, Iraq, and unnamed military engagements. I grow up as a military brat child whose Father, Great Father, and Great Great Father all service in the US Military. Millions of Americans have given their lives in the cause of freedom - some in battle, some in captivity.
Many of those who served so faithfully called America home. There are thousands of retired military personnel right here in our great state of Nebraska. Many of The Basket Is Full, Inc.; staff has family members currently serve in the military. We all have friends or family members whose lives of service included the ultimate sacrifice. Memorial Day is a day that we truly understand.
Memorial Day originated as a day when flowers and flags were placed on the graves of soldiers who had died in the Civil War. One of the reasons the date was chosen was because flowers would be in bloom and could be used to honor those who had died for their country. We commemorate this day within our own Declaration of Independence — "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."
These are the things that we enjoy each day — in no small part because of the sacrifice of those whose lives and deaths became the measure of their commitment to America. They are the spring flowers of our nation's greatness, the proof that life will go on despite difficulty and tragedy.
"Thank You, For Being The True Heros of Our American Existence!"
