Honoring Those Who Made The Ultimate Sacrifice
As we reflect on the Memorial Day holiday that just passed, it is worth noting again that we all enjoy our freedoms as Americans because of the service of the men and women of our armed forces, particularly those who made the ultimate sacrifice. To paraphrase General George S. Patton, it is one thing to mourn our military dead, but it is much better to thank God that such heroes lived in the first place. We should remember our service men and women every day – not just on a special holiday – so let us all give thanks to those who laid down their lives so that the rest of us may live in freedom in the greatest nation the world has ever known.
