Last night I watched the 25th annual National Memorial Day concert conducted on the West Lawn of the U.S Capital. It was an emotional tribute to the many brave soldiers who fought to preserve our cherished liberties. Every American owes a profound debt of gratitude to those who have served and are presently serving in the armed forces of the
United States of America.
Although we take time to remember their unselfish devotion on this day, I pray
that the cost of freedom is not forgotten as we go about our daily lives. Thousands
finest made the ultimate sacrifice. Many
of them are buried in
and in nondescript graves elsewhere. May
the memory of what they have done be kept alive in our hearts. Arlington
