On Monday, Americans will celebrate Memorial Day in a variety of ways including a traditional favorite — family reunions!

Memorial Day is a time to salute and honor all the military men and women, past and present, who have bravely served to protect our country and its freedoms.

Today, take a moment to observe the life and dedication of a fallen, local soldier named Private First Class, Thomas Allers of Plainwell. The 23-year old and three others were killed in the line of duty in Afghanistan on Monday.  Click here for the full story.

My heart goes out to his family and all of you who have suffered a similar loss.  I also extend my thanks and gratitude for your sacrifice. You make me so proud to be an American!
