On May 30, we commemorate our country's most solemn National Day of Remembrance - Memorial Day. We honor the men and women who sacrificed their lives while in active military service.
We remember that this day has been granted to us by the most noble, selfless, and courageous men and women our country has ever known. Our nation owes a debt to its fallen heroes that we can never fully repay. We also honor the families whose lives were forever changed as they face a future without their loved ones.
This Memorial Day, as you enjoy time with your family and friends, please remember to give thanks for the men and women who died
to preserve our freedoms.
