A Time to Remember

Memorial Day is right around the corner – a day set aside to honor those brave men and women who lost their lives while serving in the United States military.

At 3:00 p.m. local time on Memorial Day, please join us in recognizing the National Moment of Remembrance to reflect on the selfless sacrifice of those who gave all to protect our freedom and to make the world a safer place.

Better yet, take action.

  • Contact your local Gold Star Mothers chapter and find out how you can help the families of our fallen heroes.
     
  • Visit or write to wounded veterans at a VA hospital.
     
  • Visit or write to elderly veterans at a state veterans’ home.
     
  • Shake a veteran’s hand and say, “Thank you.”

We hope this weekend is a time when you can enjoy special moments with family and friends. We also hope that everyone will remember the true meaning of Memorial Day, and honor those we have lost.
