Remarks – Speech for Memorial Day Ceremony
May 26, 2017
Today we congregate to honor and remember the brave men and women who proudly and gallantly served and are serving our great Country throughout the years and decades.
Throughout our history young soldiers, sailors, marines and members of the United States Army, Airforce, Coastguard, Reserves and National Guard put themselves into battle and harms-way never knowing whether they would see another sunrise. They were willing to give up their lives for a cause greater than themselves.
All of them are heroes. We must never forget these brave men and women and always honor their valor. We would not have our cherished freedoms without them and their sacrifice.
I am very proud to be a part of this tribute today and with all of you! Cortlandt is a wonderful community that comes together not just at these special ceremonies but every day to honor those who have defended us over the years.
God bless them all from the past, the present and future and always God Bless America.
