Dan Crenshaw Pays Tribute to Fallen Comrades in Memorial Day Message
Some might say Memorial Day is all about going to the beach and chowing down on hot dogs. Thinking so is more wrong than ketchup on the aforementioned hot dogs, but I digress. Our homey Dan Crenshaw took to the Twitters to remind us of what Memorial Day is really about.
It's beyond perfect:

Yep. As usual, Dan the Man is an absolute class act. No partisan douchebaggery to be found in his message. Just a moving tribute to his friends who unfortunately didn't make it home. To Crenshaw and all of his fallen comrades who gave their lives so the rest of us can keep on keeping on, we salute you. Always and forever.
This is what today is all about. Remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice so the rest of us can live free. No complaints about servicemen being "toxically masculine" imperialist baby-killers. Just a reverence for everything they've done for us.
Methinks the best way for us to pay tribute to the fallen is to keep America awesome for many years to come. Those troops give everything they have to make sure America stays numero uno. The least we can do is refrain from nosediving 'Murica toward suckiness.
In the end, all we can say is "thank you." Happy Memorial Day
