“On Memorial Day, we remember the brave women and men who proudly served this country and made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. We are so grateful for their service and their heroism. At the Council, we strive to honor these men and women every day by upholding the traditions of democracy and representative government, the gifts bestowed on all Americans through their courage and valor. On behalf of the entire Council, I extend my gratitude to those fallen veterans and their families. We will forever keep them in our hearts and honor all of our veterans in their name.”
