Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation’s service.
A man’s country is not a certain area of land, of mountains, rivers, and woods, but it is a principle and patriotism is loyalty to that principle.
George William Curtis
A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself. -Joseph Campbell
If we mean to have heroes, statesmen and philosophers, we should have learned women.
And I’m proud to be an American,
where at least I know I’m free.
And I won’t forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me. -Lee Greenwood
(VS sez: Remember the brave men and women!)
