Announcements and Prayers
For the Circle of Trust, Dirty Bird explained that his parents had been visiting ancestors’ graves over Memorial Day Weekend for the last ten years. He had never joined them. Last year, Dirty’sdaughter went with them and she came back with a wealth of knowledge regarding Dirty’s family. Specifically, Dirty Bird’s Great Uncle, Raymond G. Meyer of Fairbury, Nebraska. Raymond G. Meyer was killed in a Japanese Prisoner of War Prison during WWII. The Army knows that he was held captive in Luzon, Philippines, but has not discovered his remains. Raymond never returned home. Never got a chance to start a family. Never got to say good bye to his mother.
Dirty Bird asked that the PAX keep men and women, like Raymond, in their thoughts as they celebrate Memorial Day Weekend. Dirty dedicated the workout to Raymond Meyer, KIA.
Dirty Bird then concluded the COT with a prayer asking for Sky Q to watch over the PAX and their families over the long weekend.
