As we enjoy the holiday and the beginning of Summer, let us take time to remember that some people fought and died in service to this country. Whatever your feelings about any particular war, our security depends on the strength of our military, derived in part by the willingness of our warriors to put themselves in grave danger without hesitation. We have been served by their bravery and sacrifice.
The purpose of this holiday is to give us, the citizens of the United States, time to reflect on the ultimate sacrifice made by others in service to us. Let us spend at least a moment today doing so.
