Reflecting on Memorial Day

On Memorial Day, I always take time to pause to reflect on some of the war dead who are buried nearby in the Alexandria National Cemetery, one of the oldest national cemeteries in the nation.


‘The Last Full Measure’ – A Memorial Day Weekend Tribute

Memorial Day is the day that we salute all the women and men who have served our country and given their life in the name of freedom. In war and peace these brave individuals make sacrifices far beyond what most of us appreciate. In the name of freedom, they give up the comfort and convenience of civilian life in order to protect our rights and liberties. Without their devotion to duty and dedication to freedom there simply would not be a United States of America.

On this Memorial Day, please make a point of remembering those women and men who have given the last full measure of devotion in the cause of freedom.
