We have two holidays that commemorate those brave men and women who have served our nation. Memorial Day is to remember and pay tribute to those who paid the ultimate price to defend and preserve our nation, our values, and our way of life.
Veterans Day honors our veterans both past and present. Both those who have served and those who died deserve our utmost respect. They truly exemplify Rotary's slogan of "Service Above Self."
Thank you. To those who died, and to the families and friends who miss them.
