Remember Our Heroes

In: The Lonestar Weekly   Posted 05/24/2019

This weekend for Memorial Day, we honor the brave men and women who served our nation, and gave their lives to protect the freedoms we enjoy every day.

President Ronald Reagan once said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.”

Throughout our history, brave men and women have answered the call to serve this country. Whether they answered that call nearly 250 years ago to fight for our independence, or in recent years to combat the global threat of terrorism – they are all heroes.

Like the great soldiers before them - and many after - they laid down their lives in service to our country, and our values as a nation.  

On behalf of a grateful nation – thank you to all the brave men and women who lost their lives while fighting for our freedoms. We will never forget your service or your sacrifice.
