As We Near Memorial Day
Newsletter - May 2017 #2 Tell a Friend
As May is the month that has the most military-themed designations (National Military Appreciation Month, Military Spouse Appreciation Day, VE Day and Armed Forces Day) it seems fitting the month closes out with Memorial Day, the most solemn military observance. I hope you will join me in taking a moment to honor those who gave so much to make our country great. Additionally, let us be mindful of Gold Star families. While they more than likely remember their lost loved ones on a daily basis, Memorial Day is a day in which the nation joins them in recognizing their loss. Remember those who paid a heavy price, giving up all of their tomorrows so that we could live our lives in freedom.
