Reflecting on Memorial Day, it’s so important that we take the time to remember and honor our veterans, especially those who have made the ultimate sacrifice so that we might enjoy the freedoms we have. Thank you to all of our veterans, past and present, for your service to our country. We truly owe you a debt that can never be repaid.
Thank you also to the American Legion and other veterans organizations, as well as all of the volunteers throughout the area who faithfully hold memorial services and parades each year, so we might never forget the price others have paid for our freedom. In the often quoted words of Thomas Jefferson: “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” May we never forget the patriotic men and women who have protected our liberty with their very lives.
