Honoring Bravery and Sacrifice on Memorial Day
May 25 2012
For many people the Memorial Day weekend marks the beginning of summer. However, it is important to remember and recognize the real reason for the holiday. It’s a day that we are reminded of the deaths of the brave men and women who have given their lives for our freedoms. It’s important to reflect on their sacrifices.
This article, Why They Serve—'If Not Me, Then Who?' published in the Wall Street Journal is a great example of the very real sacrifices our servicemembers and their families face every day. Take time to read this reflection of the heroes who have graciously volunteered to serve our country.
