Your Day, Not Mine

In my 9th and 12th grade history classes at Tattnall Square Academy, we begin each day with a DMR (Daily Military Remembrance) to honor those who have given their life in service of our country.

With this being my birthday, I was curious as to who gave their life on the day I was born. Meet today’s DMR, Pfc. John Martin from Forsyth, Georgia. Screen Shot 2019-10-03 at 10.05.55 PMHe was only 23 on October 3, 1966. A life filled with dreams and goals.

Today, GOD blessed me with my 53rd year. I’m sure Pfc. Martin would have wanted to reach this age (that includes many more like him who died on this date in Vietnam).

On the same day – sadness in one home and joy in the other. A beginning and an end. My 53rd year of freedom has been granted by GOD’s grace and your sacrifice for the freedom’s I’ve long enjoyed.

Thank you, sir.

This is your day, not mine.
