This Day of Remembrance

May 27, 2014

We may celebrate Memorial Day on this particular day, but we honor and remember our fallen military heroes every single day.As I reflect on the countless sacrifices our servicemen and women have made for our country, let us honor the brave Americans who gave their lives serving in our Armed Forces, including our guardsmen and reservists. Let us thank them for their service and honor them for protecting our freedom.

We are a nation built by great leaders – leaders whose vision for Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness has survived world wars and terrorist attacks. Our founders believed deeply in freedom for all, and our servicemen and women have preserved that freedom through times of turmoil and times of peace with great sacrifice. As we remember our military heroes – with unwavering respect and solemn appreciation – let us come together, as Americans, to continue preserving and protecting this great nation.

There are no words powerful enough to express my profound gratitude to our military families for the sacrifices made to keep America strong, so on this Memorial Day I simply say thank you.  

May God bless you and may He continue to bless America!
