In Honor of the Fallen 2012Memorial Day is a solemn occasion to remember the fallen who have given our nation the ultimate price that can be paid — their very lives — for our country, and in the name of democracy. While we mark the day with outdoor barbeques and get-togethers with family and friends, we should try to take a moment to remember the real purpose of this day.

I give thanks for the hundreds of thousands of fallen men and women who have served in our armed forces. It is but for their sacrifice that we enjoy living in this country of immigrants, who helped free Europe from the evil terror of the Nazi regime, and who helped find a way to balance the Soviet Union’s naked aggression after WWII.

In memory of all of those who have given their lives to help keep our country free, you are remembered and honored for your courage, loyalty and bravery in service to our country.
