Remember those who sacrificed

On Monday, we will observe Memorial Day, a day set aside for us to remember and to honor those brave men and women who have died in this nation’s military conflicts.
Today, in Afghanistan, in Iraq and in other trouble spots around the world, American soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen are fighting and dying is the continuing fight against the forces of evil — forces of evil whose ultimate goal if the destruction of our freedom, of our way of life, and of our very nation itself.
They will be defeated. They will not triumph. We will be victorious.
But freedom is never free, and there has been and there will continue to be a high price paid for our victory.
Our young men and women on the front lines will pay this price in their life’s blood.
This nation was forged in the crucible of war, and our men and women today follow in the footsteps of those who died at Yorktown and at Bunker Hill.
They follow in the footsteps of those who died on the killing fields of Gettysburg when we tested, as President Lincoln said, whether this nation or any nation so conceived and so dedicated could long endure.
The nation did endure — through World War I and World War II, through Korea, and through Vietnam.
In each war, our valiant men and women answered their nation’s call. Thousands upon thousands of them never returned.
On this Memorial Day, we remember their sacrifices. Let us always remember. Let us never forget.
