Ranger Bill would like to wish everyone a "Blessed Memorial Day." As you may know, Ranger Bill served his country as a Navy Medic assigned to a Marine unit. For the details of Ranger Bill's military service listen to "Bim, the Dog" (RB009) and "If the Lord Is for Us, Who Can Be Against Us?" (RB020).
