A Day to honor and remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our nation.
Memorial Day has traditionally been one of the most solemn and patriotic days for Americans.
It is a day when all Americans, regardless of ideologies, race, creed, or political persuasion, join together to remember the sacrifices of those who answered their nation’s call. It is our sacred duty to keep the legacy of our nation’s patriots forever fresh in the memories of future generations. We are bound by honor to do so. They fought and died to preserve this land of hopes and dreams. Without the courage, valor and singleness of purpose of our nation’s veterans, the values that have always made it possible for us to meet new challenges, and move forward as a nation, would have been lost. The freedoms that so many Americans enjoy did not come cheaply. They were paid for with the flesh and blood of American servicemen and women, and with the tears of those whose lives were changed forever by the loss of a loved one. Memorial Day is a day of opportunity to give thanks for all that we are blessed with. It should also be a day that we rededicate ourselves to our country and to America’s living veterans and their families in memory of the sacrifices they and others have made. It is a responsibility with which we all are charged — to do our best to repay the debt that is owed to those who have presented us with our most precious gift … freedom. Remember those who served. All gave some, some gave all. In recognition of the holiday, we will be closed Monday, May 30th.
