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.
Memorial Day was intended to be a day of prayer, so let us pray for the repose of the souls of all our brave patriots who gave their lives in the line of duty.
Never forget their sacrifices.
May God bless them and their families.
May God continue to bless the United States of America.
