This Memorial Day Weekend is a time to remember the fallen heroes throughout our nation’s history “who gave the last full measure of devotion” to their nation.
“As we honor their memory today, let us pledge that their lives, their sacrifices, their valor shall be justified and remembered for as long as God gives life to this nation.” Ronald Reagan
Mere words cannot capture the enormity of their sacrifice or the anguish of loved ones they left behind. On this Memorial Day weekend remember and pray for our troops who are now in harm’s way. And pray for their families and loved ones as they endure the hardship and uncertainty of deployment.
I close this Memorial Day message with a favorite poem by Marine Chaplain Father Dennis Edward O’Brien, which pays tribute to our courageous soldiers for their service in protecting the fundamental liberties guaranteed by our Constitution:
