As we honor their memory today, let us pledge that their lives, their sacrifices, their valor shall be justified and remembered for as long as God gives life to this nation. And let us also pledge to do our utmost to carry out what must have been their wish: that no other generation of young men will every have to share their experiences and repeat their sacrifice.” – Ronald Reagan

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 #MemorialDay 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 last full measure of devotion. 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.
