Memorial Day

Memorial Day is a solemn day on which we honor the 1.8 million men and women who have given their lives in service to our country.  Regardless of gender, race, religion or sexual orientation, they stepped forward as Americans, making the ultimate sacrifice so that we may enjoy our freedoms.
