Memorial Day Tribute - Never Forget Their Sacrifice

This Memorial Day we honor the brave men and women of our military who gave their lives for the cause of freedom, and we extend our gratitude to their families for the sacrifice they also gave.

“Their service strengthens our will to persevere through every challenge. They remind us of what it means to be an American." -Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld in his 2006 Memorial Day message

The USO Reminds us that Memorial Day is More than the Day the Pool Opens
...and encourages everyone, as part of our Memorial Day activities, to join in a national Moment of Remembrance, by pausing for one minute at 3:00 p.m. local time on Monday, May 29, to remember and honor those Americans who died fighting for liberty. For more information, visit
