Memorial Day: a time to reflect

Memorial Day originally arose out of tradition as a solemn holiday created to honor the memories of the men and women who have died in the military service of the United States of America. It's a time to reflect on their sacrifices, their heroism, and their courage.

It is difficult to offer a fitting tribute in words, but we will always be grateful for their willingness to defend our country and our democracy. America is a free nation because of them. And so, to our lost brothers and sisters, we say thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.
