1. #MemorialDay2019. This video of President Eisenhower in 1964 with Walter Cronkite a haunting reminder of what this day means.

Fitting it comes in spring. Cemeteries are green. Flowers in bloom. A backdrop for the "new birth of freedom" Abe Lincoln prayed for at Gettysburg.
2. D-Day 1944 and Midway 1942 both happened in the first week of June. We honor the fallen but we need to also honor those who served & continue to bear scars of battle, many unseen. We still have homeless veterans many in need of care. Please ask Congress to support our vets.
3. It was never better said: "With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle

Remember all those who gave everything for our freedom today. #MemorialDay2019

Ronald Reagan at Arlington National Cemetery on #MemorialDay in 1985: “It is, in a way, an odd thing to honor those who died in defense of our country, in defense of us, in wars far away.  The... 1/3
imagination plays a trick. We see these soldiers in our mind as old and wise. see them as something like the Founding Fathers, grave and gray haired.  But most of them were boys when they died, and they gave up two lives – the one they were living…and the one... 2/3
they would have lived. When they died, they gave up their chance to be husbands and fathers and grandfathers.  They gave up their chance to be revered old men.  They gave up everything for our country…for us.  And all we can do is remember.”

Today all across Texas and our great nation we pause to honor the brave sacrifices of our military members as they continue to lead and serve at home and abroad. We also unite as Americans to pay tribute to those who gave their lives while serving our country. #MemorialDay
It is because they fearlessly defended our liberty that we are able to stand here today in our beloved nation that serves as a beacon of freedom to all. #MemorialDay #MemorialDay2019
Let us never forget the sacrifices of our brave men and women in uniform, and we pray that God will continue to bless them, their families, and the United States of America. #MemorialDay #MemorialDay2019
