A day of remembrance

On this Memorial Day, we honor and pay tribute to the brave souls who selflessly served our country. It is a day to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice, defending the values and freedoms we hold dear. Their courage, dedication, and unwavering commitment serve as an inspiration to us all.

We reflect upon the countless men and women who stepped forward, leaving behind their families, homes, and dreams, answering the call to protect and defend. They forged an unbreakable bond, bound by duty and a shared love for their nation. In times of conflict, they faced unimaginable challenges and hardships, standing tall in the face of adversity.

From yesteryears’ battlefields to the distant lands of today, they fought with valor, resilience, and honor. They braved the perils of war, sacrificing their comfort, safety, and, too often, their lives. Their sacrifice echoes through generations, reminding us of the tremendous price paid for our liberty.

We remember those who fell in distant lands, their resting places marked by crosses, stars, and memorials. Their names may be etched on stone, but their spirit lives on in the hearts of a grateful nation. They are the sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, fathers and mothers who paid the ultimate price for freedom. We will forever cherish their memory and the legacy they left behind.

We honor the veterans who returned from the battlefield, carrying the weight of their experiences. They bear visible and invisible scars, reminders of their sacrifices.

On this Memorial Day, may we stand united, forever grateful to the brave men and women who have proudly worn our nation’s uniform. Their legacy will endure, their memory will be cherished, and their sacrifice will never be forgotten.

Today, with deep gratitude and honor, I say the names of my family members who have served across all four military branches, dating back to the Civil War and continuing through today. James, John, Ervin, Paul, Donald, Jerry, Paul, Thomas, Frank, Mike, Dorothy, Dennis, Derek, June, David, Ford, Wendy, Tom, Brett, and Eric.

Celebrate by saying the names of your family members who have served, too!
