What's Inside:

Memorial Day 2015

"Those who for their country died shall fill an honored grave, for glory lights the soldier's tomb, and beauty weeps the brave"

-- Joseph Drake


Memorial Day 2015

On Monday we will observe Memorial Day, a national holiday that honors the memory of those who died while serving in the country's armed forces. The flag of the United States will be raised to the top of the staff, and then solemnly lowered to half-staff, where it will remain until noon.   It is then raised to full-staff for the remainder of the day. 


I hope all of you have a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend with family and friends. As I do every year, I also encourage you to take a moment to reflect on and appreciate the solemn debt we owe those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.  Let this holiday be a reminder of the fact that our safety and freedom is paid for by the sacrifice of those that came before us, and died to protect our country.
