To Those who Gave the Last Full Measure of Devotion
On this Memorial Day, our thoughts and prayers are with all of those who are grieving. May we, as Abraham Lincoln said, “highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”
We are blessed to live in the greatest and most free county in the world. As you enjoy the long weekend, pause to honor the 1,354,000+ men and women who died in service to our country since 1775.
