In Recognition of Americas Fallen and Patriots on Memorial Day
By Capt Joseph R. John, May 28, 2018: Op Ed #389
Each year on Memorial Day weekend we honor American Patriots who gave the "last full measure of devotion" in their service to the Republic, so their fellow Americans could live their lives in freedom.
We not only honor American Combat Veterans who gave up their tomorrows, we also honor Veterans, and members of the US Armed Forces who were often separated from their loved ones, for long periods, as they went into “Harm’s Way.”On this Memorial Day weekend, the nation solemnly pays homage to the thousands of Gold Star families for the loss of their loved ones, and the enormity of their sacrifice!
On Memorial Day, and every day throughout the year, we also honor Veterans who served in the defense of the Republic. America owes those Veterans a debt of gratitude that it can never repay! At one point in their lives, those Veterans wrote a blank check made payable to “The United States of America” for an amount “up to and including their lives.”
