Memorial Day is a time to remember those who gave their lives in military service for all of us in the United States of America. As we enjoy the blessings of liberty this weekend, remember we are here today because of heroes, people who, from the beginnings of our country to present day, gave all so that we can enjoy freedom.
Whether here at home or overseas, military service comes with inherent dangers. Our hearts go out to families and fellow veterans who’s loved ones and friends died in military service.
This Memorial Day (May 29), include the National Moment of Remembrance in your activities at 3 p.m. It’s a minute for Americans to unite in remembrance of service members lost, some who we know and many we may not know, all being the sons and daughters of this country.
