On this Memorial Day weekend, let us pause to remember those heroic men and women of the United States Armed Services who gave of themselves to serve, who fought to defend our freedoms, and who did not come home. We also honor the families and loved ones upon whose shoulders the burden of this ultimate sacrifice will forever lie. Our mere thanks to these patriots and their families will never be enough.
Amidst the noise of an election cycle, it is alarmingly easy to forget what we are all working to protect. As we go to the polls to cast our votes, let us remember just how precious our liberty and freedom are, and always remember and honor those who have paid the ultimate price protecting it.
