Today is a day that we and our fellow Americans proudly remember those who served in defense of the greatest Country in the world, and paid the ultimate price in defense of our freedom. We are forever grateful to those willing to serve and protect America’s interests, and, as President Reagan said, that though we should hold no illusions about what little we can add “to the silent testimony of those who gave their lives willingly for their country, we must try to honor them.”
Today, as Americans, let us use actions rather than words to honor the greatness of the men and women who are willing to give everything in defense of our great Nation. Make sure your actions today and everyday reflect the values and vision that led many to pay the ultimate price for the freedom we hold dear, and may we always strive to better ourselves and our country by appreciating those who allow us to do so.
Chairman Don “K” Kaltschmidt
