Why do Americans celebrate Memorial Day? Watch the video below, as the late President Ronald Reagan has the answer.
Thank you to all of those men and women who have served this country and who paid the ultimate price to defend the United States and all of the priceless freedoms we are afforded today.
Happy Memorial Day.
Today we honor those in the U.S. armed forces who have died to protect and defend the United States of America.
God bless all the men and women, and their loved ones who made the ultimate sacrifice for this country.
Pay your respects to those who have sacrificed their life for our country.
At a time when the United States is yearning for strong presidential leadership, it’s best to reflect to the past for guidance into the future. On Memorial Day, this sentiment is magnified 100-fold. Our veterans that never returned home from the battlefield demonstrated resolute strength in the face of unthinkable evil. We must always remember the reason for the long weekend, which is to honor those in America’s armed forces and celebrate what their courage means for us each and every day.
To all the American heroes in uniform:
Like most holidays, we wish they were celebrated in some form everyday. And there is something to that. Today is one of those occasions: Memorial Day.
The reason we have no work or school on this Monday is to honor the brave men and women who fought and died for our country. It’s a reminder that freedom isn’t free.
Here is an image that moved me on this Memorial Day.
We Owe Countless Thanks to Those Who Served and Protected the United States of America.
