I have been in Boston over the weekend. Walking the Freedom Trail and seeing historic sites truly transports you back to the Revolutionary War period. You get a sense of the challenges, emotions and patriotism that were so strong. We would not be the country that we are today if not for the courage and spirit of these men and women.
We would not continue to be the country that we are today without the courage, commitment and willingness to serve that all of our military men, women and their families show, and have shown, over generations.
On this Memorial Day, let us acknowledge them and express our appreciation. Thank you.
