Honored, Never Forgotten
Memorial Day is not just the beginning of a summer of barbeques, pool parties, and great times with good friends. There is an important reason we set aside this day. Our brothers and sisters went off to war in distant lands by the millions with the dream of coming back to their loved ones. Many never made it home.
We can agree or disagree with the wars of our nation, but we can never forget those who made great sacrifices for the ideals and liberties we cherish. This sacrifice is borne not only by the brave soldiers, but their friends and family back home.
This Memorial Day, we commend and honor each and every soldier and military family member. All our soldiers, including those coming home from the current war need and deserve our support for their health and well-being.
The greatest respect we can pay our veterans is to reaffirm our commitment to those who serve our nation.
From all of us at the Louisville Jefferson County Democratic Party, we wish you a wonderful Memorial Day. For all the soldiers and their loved ones, you are in our thoughts.
