Freedom is secured every day by our men and women in uniform. We must build a future worthy of their sacrifice.
Ceremonies are important. But our gratitude has to be more than visits to the troops, and once-a-year Memorial Day ceremonies. We honor the dead best by treating the living well.
Throughout the history of our young nation, we have seen our military go bravely into battle, armed with courage and willing to make the ultimate sacrifice.
As America celebrates Memorial Day, we pay tribute to those who have given their lives in our nation's wars.
Memorial Day isn't just about honoring veterans, its honoring those who lost their lives. Veterans had the fortune of coming home. For us, that's a reminder of when we come home we still have a responsibility to serve. It's a continuation of service that honors our country and those who fell defending it.
As we look forward to freedom, the shining city on the hill and the best days of America lying ahead, it is the men and women in uniform who protect, defend and make us proud to whom we should look and give thanks every night.
Those who served, and those who continue to serve in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard took an oath to uphold and protect the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic, and we can never forget the importance of their commitment to our Nation.
Memorial Day this year is especially important as we are reminded almost daily of the great sacrifices that the men and women of the Armed Services make to defend our way of life.
The American flag, Old Glory, standing tall and flying free over American soil for 228 years is the symbol of our beloved country. It is recognized from near and afar, and many lives have been lost defending it.
The willingness of America's veterans to sacrifice for our country has earned them our lasting gratitude.
On this day of national mourning, when hearts are heavy, we remember the fallen, who gave their lifes in the battles. Their bravery and sacrifice are a legacy that we shall never forget. May their memory forever burn in our hearts.

When they asked him why - he said, "The people, who were trying to make this world worse... are not taking a day off. How can I? Light up the darkness."
