Memorial Day 2016
What do you do to celebrate our freedom and remember those who fought to honor it?Memorial Day is one of the most important days in America. It’s a day to give thanks, to pay tribute and to remember those who gave their lives to protect our country. In reality, we should be thankful every single day of the year, but the third Monday of May is the official day where we all come together to honor our fallen soldiers.
The dead soldier’s silence sings our national anthem.—Aaron Kilbourn
We come, not to mourn our dead soldiers, but to praise them.—Francis A. Walker
And I’m proud to be an American,
where at least I know I’m free.
And I won’t forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.”—Lee Greenwood
Join us this week on Veterans Radio as we celebrate those who paid the ultimate price to keep us free. Listen as we replay one of to our late partner, Gary Lillie’s, most powerful interviews about the history and meaning of Arlington National Cemetery.
