Happy Memorial Day To All Veterans And Their Families As I Celebrate The Life And Legacy Of PFC Arthur Lee Dancy

Today I celebrate the life and legacy of my uncle PFC Arthur Lee Dancy.

I remember the day the military came to the house to tell my grandma.

I would like to also salute all men and women who have served and continue to serve in the military.

For the men and women whom have returned and/or the families of those whom didn’t return, I dedicate this song to you: He Has His Hands On You – Marvin Sapp

Note: How fitting it is I will be traveling with my son’s 7th grade class on Friday to visit the Memorial in Washington DC.
