Remember their sacrifices on Memorial Day
Observances are slated around the country on Monday, May 30.
On Monday, May 30, communities around the U.S. will remember those who gave their lives in service to their country. Observances are being held in Jamestown and surrounding communities. Whether you work or are able to enjoy a day off on the holiday, take a moment to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
We’re grateful to those who serve and have served our country to preserve and protect our freedoms. Thank you. We are a country that has much to be thankful for, despite our individual differences. And we are free to express those differences, unlike people in some other countries. Consider Russia, where there is no “right” to speak freely in the press to provide a true story of what is transpiring in Ukraine.
On Monday in Jamestown, a Memorial Day program will be conducted at Club 1883 (Knights of Columbus). The observance honors the sacrifices of those who died in service to their country. To families who have lost a loved one in service, it matters that people attend these observances to honor their sacrifice and show their support.
On Monday in many communities around our country, people will attend an observance. “Taps” will be played, U.S. flags will fly and patriotic music will be played. Graves will be decorated. Prayers will be said. All are a way to honor their sacrifices.
Pause this Memorial Day and remember.
