The signers of the Declaration of Independence pledged “to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor” as they laid the foundation upon which our country would be built. Since 1776, members of our military have made that same pledge as they fought for and defended the freedom that we often take for granted. In the 239 years since the signing of the Declaration, many have not only pledged their lives, but followed through on that commitment by giving their lives in defense of this great Country. It is that commitment that we remember this Memorial Day. Please join Patriot Voices in taking a moment out of your day to stop and reflect on the debt of gratitude we owe those brave men and women, and remember the lives of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
