Words to live by…
Memorial Day isn't just about honoring veterans, its honoring those who lost their lives. Veterans had the fortune of coming home.
For us, that's a reminder of when we come home we still have a responsibility to serve.
It's a continuation of service that honors our country and those who fell defending it.
