This Memorial Day

Today we take time to honor and celebrate those who gave their lives to preserve the freedoms we too often take for granted.

With the deepest respect, may we always remain thankful.

Wishing all of our readers and subscribers a very happy Memorial Day!

“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.” 

– Benjamin Harrison
