Dedicating this week to honoring and sharing quotes about Memorial Day!
“Memorial Day isn’t just about honoring veterans, its honoring those who lost their lives. Veterans had the fortune of coming home. For us, that’s a reminder of when we come home we still have a responsibility to serve. It’s a continuation of service that honors our country and those who fell defending it.”
~ Pete Hegseth — (born June 6, 1980) is an American FOX News Channel contributor. He served in the U.S. military with deployments to Cuba and Iraq.
According to Pete, serving your country does not end when you finish your time in the armed services. Wonderful sentiment and, personally, makes me feel rather secure on this Memorial Day!
Another similar quote, from long ago, on Memorial Day:
