Today is a day when we pause and remember those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Over the years, I fear the meaning of today has been lost. It is not about BBQs and beers. It's about honoring those fallen heroes and thanking them - and their families - for keeping our country safe.
We are the land of the free because of the brave. Thank you so very much for protecting me and my family. You, and your family, paid a very dear price for me and I am truly grateful. May you and your comrades rest in peace.
