Remembering those who served on Memorial Day

I would like to extend sincere gratitude to all of the soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines who have fought and died for our great city, state and country.

As we remember and honor those who have fought and died for our freedom it is also important that we recognize and commend the men and women currently serving in our armed forces. Their dedication is one of the main reasons that America remains secure. The devotion of these troops is a tribute to all of those who have died in defense of our liberty and the freedom that keeps our nation a beacon of hope throughout the world.

On Memorial Day it is understandable to feel somber about the loss of our loved ones, but me must always remember and never forget that our freedom comes as a direct result of their actions. Sorrow, may be the word that best describes what we feel for the brave men and women who so valiantly and willingly gave of their blood, their sweat, their tears and ultimately their lives so that we could enjoy our freedoms here today.

Fond thoughts of our fallen soldiers lead us to the hope that they would not want us to dwell on their demise. Indeed, these heroes would want us to value our liberties, our freedom and the relative peace that we enjoy today as a result of their sacrifice.

As we look toward the future we must impart on our youth the importance and gravity of Memorial Day. If we do not teach them well, if we choose to overlook the past then all of the bravery and valor that was demonstrated by those who fought for America will be in vain and that, quite simply, is unacceptable.

Our fallen soldiers have already given of their life for every one of us. Now, it is our obligation to give them our thoughts, prayers and gratitude for the liberties we enjoy today.

This Memorial Day, as we honor our fallen soldiers for their sacrifice and service, we can remember a quotation from President Reagan, who so eloquently said “There can be no greater good that the quest for peace and no finer purpose than the preservation of freedom.”

Let us reflect on our past tribulations so that future generations can have a better understanding of how to practice peace and extend freedom. That may be the best way to pay tribute on Memorial Day.

"Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. But, the Marines don't have that problem."

A large +1 to that.

Absolutely!!!

Its times like this I remember my Dad, he spent 4yrs in Europe leaving high school to go fight. Went ashore on Normandy the 2nd day and stayed to the end of the battle of the Bulge in '44. I used to call him every Memorial Day and let him know how proud of him we were that he and others like him answered the call to defend our freedoms and protect our way of life.

Remembering all those who have served, thanks to you, we continue to enjoy our freedoms!!
