Before we pack up the grill, beach towels, and bathing suits for a relaxing Memorial Day weekend with family and friends, let us take a moment to remember and to honor the men and women who have served and have given their lives for the freedom we enjoy today – to remind us that freedom isn’t free. Below are 20 Memorial Day quotes from some of the greatest minds:
A special day to pay tribute to all the brave souls who had given their lives while serving the country so that you and I can sleep peacefully at night. In fact, we should be thankful to them every single day of our lives. They will never be forgotten as they will always live in the hearts of the people they loved and protected so dearly.
Memorial Day is a United States Federal Holiday observed on the last Monday of May. Formerly known as Decoration Day, it commemorates U.S. men and women who perished while in military service to their country. First enacted to honor Union soldiers of the American Civil War, after World War I it was expanded to include casualties of any war or military action.
