Memorial Day 2018 Luxembourg American Cemetery and MemorialFor Memorial Day the greatest respect we can pay Americans who have died to protect us is to and improve what they were asked to create and defend -- our national family and American way. America is the bright spot of the world, a country based on principals and vision. And as always, the dark forces want to diminish it.  Old opponents are rearming, and new opponents are rapidly expanding militarily. Is what our ancestors died for to be lost?
This Memorial Day make a private pledge to be more worthy of the price paid for your way of life, to be a better steward of what they died to give you by getting your national house in order, protecting your national family, treating each other better, appreciating your nation and protecting its integrity.
To make them proud of what they did for you and yours.
