On behalf of the Bleeding Green Nation staff, we hope that you’re all having a pleasant Memorial Day weekend as we take time to remember the fallen heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
Speaking of that, a number of this year’s world champions expressed their gratitude via social media.
Freedom sometimes comes at a cost. Today, I just want to thank all of the brave men & women who have sacrificed so much to provide us w/ the freedoms we have in this country. Its often taken for granted and y’all don’t get the recognition you deserve. So thank you & God bless! pic.twitter.com/UhbemUxUUC— Carson Wentz (@cj_wentz) May 28, 2018
