As you enjoy time with friends and loved ones this weekend, please take a moment to reflect on the extreme sacrifices paid by our veterans and those who have served in our armed forces. America’s illustrious history and framework for our nation was built upon the men and women who battled tyranny and oppression so others could live free.
The freedoms and democratic government we often take for granted could never have been possible if it weren’t for the selfless and courageous heroism of our soldiers, sailors, pilots and military members on the home front and abroad. Please take a moment this holiday weekend to thank a veteran in your life and remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for the preservation of our nation.
