Today, and everyday, Ashmore and Ashmore salutes our military men and women- those that have served before and now.
We are devastated to hear of the young men and women who gave their lives last Thursday in Afghanistan, and our prayers are with their friends and family. We grieve with our great nation, and recognize the sacrifice these men and women made for us all.
