Remembering and honoring our fallen heroes
Every Memorial Day, in communities across the nation, we honor the brave members of our country’s armed forces who gave their lives to protect our country and our freedom.
As we reflect on the service of our fallen heroes, let us also remember the families they left behind. We honor the memory of those we have lost when we support their spouses and children, and when we help our returning veterans build healthy and successful lives here at home.
On Monday, May 25, I ask you to join me in a moment of remembrance and respect for all who have died in service to our country, and offer our gratitude to all who serve around the world and here at home.
