Trace Adkins - Arlington

I think of the boys of Saluda, whose names are on the that little stone at the county courthouse. My great uncle, Ira J. McCarty has his name there. Others have joined him. While you are enjoying the races, the bbq and the fun this holiday weekend, take time to rememeber those who made it all possible. For Sgt. Ira J. McCarty and for Capt. Eric Bergstrom (USAF). May we never forget the thanks we owe you for the things we have and the lives we live. We are in awe forever to your sacrafice for our freedom.

Their wives and sweethearts never had the happy homecoming. They gave the full measure of devotion for us and this country we live in.

This and every Memorial Day, we are in awe of their full measure of devotion to our nation.
