On Veteran's Day, we take time to celebrate all those, past and present, who have served their country. But on Memorial Day we pause for a moment to recognize those who have paid the ultimate price for freedom. Without the sacrifice of these men and women, we would not have the luxury to live our lives as we do, and enjoy this three day weekend.
But do enjoy your weekend, because that is exactly what these heroes gave their lives for- to secure the blessings of liberty to us and our posterity. So have your barbecues; laugh and enjoy the company of your family and friends. But pause for a moment and remember those who gave all so that you could live free.
From the Revolution, to the Civil War...
...to World War I and World War II...
...to the honored dead returning home every day.
We will remember you.
