This Memorial Day, we honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice so that we may be free.
We’re reminded of a quote by Indiana’s own, Benjamin Harrison:
“I have never been able to think of the day as one of mourning; I have never quite been able to feel that half-masted flags were appropriate on Decoration Day. I have rather felt that the flag should be at the peak, because those whose dying we commemorate rejoiced in seeing it where their valor placed it. We honor them in a joyous, thankful, triumphant commemoration of what they did.”This Memorial Day, through all the sunshine, cook outs and family gatherings, let us not forget the meaning of this important day of remembrance. Let us take time to honor those who have served us well and fought for an ideal – a great purpose.
“It takes a hero to be one of those men who goes into battle.”~ Norman Schwarzkopf
Let us remember and honor our heroes.
Happy Memorial Day
