Americans celebrate Memorial Day, but on this fitting occasion it is important to remember and give tribute to those who have perished in our defense. They gave the ultimate sacrifice, their life, so we can live in liberty.
So today, with the parades coming down Main Street, the bands playing the Battle Hymn, Yankee Doodle Dandy and the Star Spangled Banner, please remember those who are not there to witness the America they defended.
Salute the Flag in their honor. Thank you.
