This weekend we will observe Memorial Day, a day of remembrance. As we look forward to summer, it is also time to pause and honor those men and women who have given their lives for our country. Their sacrifices have enabled us to be the prosperous and inventive country we are. Least we forget what others have done in the past to create and maintain this grand experiment in democracy, we need to reflect on their service and the service of those who continue to protect us today.
Most of us have relatives, family and friends who are in or have been in the military. Take a moment to thank them for performing their duty. Speak or write to them. Send a message expressing your gratitude.
Les Merritt and his staff is proud to honor the present veterans and those in the past who have contributed so much to our country. We wish you a safe and happy Memorial Day.
