Memorial Day Message

Each Memorial Day I am amazed at how many people confuse it with Veterans Day or simply have no idea what Memorial Day is about.  I used to say to people “Happy Memorial Day” but it is not a happy day, it is a solemn day.  Memorial Day is the day that we remember, and morn, and appreciate those members of the American Military who have been killed in combat defending our nation and our freeedom over our history.

A few years back I started putting together this chart showing the numbers of American soldiers killed in action defending our freedom from the Revolutionary War until present day. By my count, one million, three hundred and twenty thousand and 92 soldiers, sailors, and airmen, have been killed in action since the Revolutionary war. People really react strongly when I give out that large number which I update each year.

I find that updating the list each Memorial Day focuses my attention on the fact that the fight for freedom never ends. Freedom is not free. It must be defended in many, many different ways, as you and I know all to well. Too often American’s forget that, Memorial Day is the day to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

So, I will not wish you a Happy Memorial Day, I will wish that you enjoy the long weekend and, while doing so, remember those who have paid the ultimate price for your freedom and liberty and prosperity.

For Liberty,

Tom Zawistowski
President
