Remembering That Our Freedom Was Not Free
Memorial Day is America’s annual vow renewal to protect freedom and liberty. It is a promise to those who died at the altar of freedom to never neglect, nor destroy the priceless gift of freedom.
It's quite common for military to consider others heroes but themselves "just doing their job".
"Honor to me means doing the right thing to represent yourself, your family, and your company."
Memorial Day is a time to honor those who have died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. Join us as we remember and honor the women and men who served and who paid the ultimate price, and whose stories have far too often disappeared from history.
