A Memorial Day Message from
State Representative George Moraitis
History tells us that Memorial Day was first known as Decoration Day. It was a day when the graves of soldiers who fell in America’s Civil War were decorated by family and friends wishing to honor and remember them. Today, Memorial Day is a time when we remember all from our nation’s past who have fallen while fighting for our freedom. We share stories of heroism and bravery with young and old, and in doing so we decorate the memories of our military’s fallen heroes.
Please join me in saluting these men and women who have laid their lives down in defending our sacred freedoms. Let us each take time this Memorial Day not just to enjoy a day off work, but rather let us take the time to decorate the memories of those who, in the words of President Lincoln, have given “the last full measure of devotion.”
May God continue to bless this great nation of ours as we honor those who have fallen in service to our country.
