Honor and Remembrance

Memorial Day is defined as: a day on which those who died in active military service are remembered. It is officially observed on the last Monday in May.

Since the American Revolution, when this county was struggling for its independence, there have been soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice so that America would be safe.

On this Memorial Day, I would like to honor and remember all the men and women who paid with their lives so that you and I could live in freedom. They took an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

They kept that oath, fighting to the death for our country, for our freedom, for our way of life. We, as Americans, should be proud and humbled to know they cared enough to make that kind of sacrifice.

I am proud to be an American, and I am proud of all the brave men and women serving in our military. And today, I honor the soldiers who never made it home.

To those who
courageously gave
their lives . . .
