Memorial Day

On this Memorial Day let us all express our gratitude and pride

For those who have gone to war fought for us and died

 

Mothers and fathers who have left their children behind

To go to unfamiliar places to protect the rights of mankind

 

Bravely going into combat putting their lives in harms way

Fighting so that each of us can enjoy another free day

 

Men and women fighting for the security for you and me

Marching to war proudly to keep our land the home of the free

 

For each soldier that has served their country with dedication

On sacrificing their lives for our freedom without hesitation

“One-hundred-thirty-seven years later, Memorial Day remains one of America’s most cherished patriotic observances. The spirit of this day has not changed — it remains a day to honor those who died defending our freedom and democracy.” — Doc Hastings

 

Let us always remember.
