that we can never fully repay.
But we can honor their sacrifice, and we must.”
~ Barack Obama
We were recently asked, “What’s the difference between Veteran’s Day and Memorial Day?” We all paused for a moment, and then sighed, as we thought of the difference. Veteran’s Day honors all who have served our military, while Memorial Day honors those women and men who died while serving in the military. (Hence the sigh.)
As so eloquently stated by former President Obama, we do indeed owe a debt to our fallen heroes.
We encourage you to take a moment this Memorial Day to pause and remember with gratitude the individuals who lost their lives in service to our country, and the families who have lost loved ones.
As Howard Osterkamp, a Korean war veteran and purple heart recipient, stated when reflecting on his service, “All gave some; some gave all.”
