Happy Memorial Day!


Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines,

This Monday, we celebrate Memorial Day. For many of you, you may have grown up recognizing this day as the beginning of summer. For many, it is a day of picnics and parades, and fun times at the beach.

This Memorial Day, I urge you to pause and reflect on what the day is REALLY about. Memorial Day is set aside as a special day for us to remember and honor those who have given the ultimate sacrifice when called upon to serve their Nation.
