This weekend, we remember those who gave their last full measure of devotion so that we might remain free and continue to enjoy the blessings of the greatest Republic the world has ever known:
Memorial Day, which is observed on the last Monday of May, commemorates the men and women who died while in the military service. In observance of the holiday, many people visit cemeteries and memorials, and volunteers often place American flags on each grave site at national cemeteries. A national moment of remembrance takes place at 3:00 p.m. local time.
Over this long holiday weekend, all Americans should pause to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
While you’re picnicking, barbecuing, attending parades, golfing, camping or enjoying whatever it is you do over a long holiday weekend, please don’t forget to take time to remember and honor the fallen.
May they rest in peace.
May God hold them in the Palm of His Hand.
May their families be comforted.
Have a safe, peaceful, and blessed Memorial Day weekend. Be careful out there.
