May the sacrifice, love of country and service to others, never be forgotten. I want to honor the courage, dedication and sacrifice of all our service members. Most of you did not ask to leave your home to fight on distant battlefields. You were called to be part of something bigger than yourself. Yesterday you seemed ordinary, yet you are extraordinary. You answered our nation’s call because you wanted to protect our nation. To those who now serve, have served, and to the fallen we will never forget your love and dedication to us. God Bless you all on this Memorial Day!
