Memorial Day - May 30, 2022

Memorial Day is a time to solemnly remember — to ensure none of us ever forget — our fallen, who, for nearly 250 years, have devoted themselves to the cause of liberty. At the Department of Veterans Affairs, we honor the fallen by striving to serve the living Veterans as well as they have served us — working to fulfill each day President Lincoln’s charge to care for those who “have borne the battle,” and their families, caregivers and survivors. More than a century and a half ago, the American statesman, Daniel Webster, penned a fitting tribute to generations of Americans in uniform — a past, present and future. Webster wrote: “Although no … engraved stone bears record of their deeds, yet will their remembrance be as lasting as the land they honored.”
