Remembering Our Heroes

 As we celebrate Memorial Day with parades and official ceremonies honoring our fallen heroes, Americans will make time to remember the sacrifices our young men and women have made to keep us the land of the free and the home of the brave. 

In his Memorial Day proclamation in 2004, President George W. Bush clearly stated the meaning of Memorial Day to our nation:  "For more than two centuries, Americans have been called to defend the founding ideals of our democracy. On Memorial Day, a grateful Nation remembers the proud patriots who made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of liberty's blessings." 

Today, as we gather with family and friends, to remember those who have given all in service to our country and those men and women who are serving today, let’s also honor the families of those fallen military heroes.
