In honor of Mike Spann, I will be speaking of him and his sacrifice to this great country during the Memorial Day Speech I will give in O'Fallon, Missouri this year. Although I never had the privilege of knowing him, he lived only a few miles from where I grew up. I think of him and his accomplishments often.

I was so blessed to have been friends with Mike in college at The Great AU. I have many wonderful memories of our "gang" hanging out, especially the big monopoly-fest at Mike's house that Christmas. I know I speak for us all when I say how honored I am to have known Mike & am forever in his debt for his love of & loyalty to our country.

May your grave forever be green from the tears our Land has shed...RIP Mike ~Never forgotten~
