On Monday, our nation will commemorate Memorial Day. For some, this will be a very personal occasion, a time to pause to remember the family and friends whose sacrifices secured our country's safety and preserved its liberty. We extend our thanks and deep appreciation to these fallen service members. 

Let us honor their service by giving all our veterans the care, support, and respect that they have earned.

Thousands of armed services members are still standing watch around the world. Please keep them, and the families at home who stand with them, in your thoughts.
