Memorial Day 2019 – Patriotic Observance

 

As we take this day of remembrance for honor our fallen soldiers, let us cherish their commitment to service and our great country.   Without their sacrifice we would not have the opportunities we have today and without their sacrifice for freedom, justice and the pursuit of a better way of life, we would not know honor.   This Memorial Day, FEW is remembering and honoring military personnel who died in the service of their country, particularly those who died in battle or as a result of wounds sustained in battle. In other words, the purpose of Memorial Day is to memorialize the veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. 

Historians seem reluctant to record or publish the names and numbers of American women who gave their lives in service to their country. Whether from illness, injury, disease, enemy fire, plane crashes, or the unknown, they deserve to be remembered as having made the ultimate sacrifice. Let us all remember that women have served proudly since our nation began.  Use this link to pay homage: http://userpages.aug.com/captbarb/lives.html

FEW stands in solidarity this Memorial Day for the patriotism of our soldiers and their sacrifice to the country.
