Although Memorial Day weekend is often celebrated with picnics and parades, we just wanted to take a pause to remember all those who made the ultimate sacrifice fighting for our country. Here are some quotes we found honoring those men and women who died fighting in the United States Armed Forces.
And I’m proud to be an American,
where at least I know I’m free.
And I won’t forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me. -Lee Greenwood
Each man is a hero and an oracle to somebody. -Ralph Waldo Emerson
The brave die never, though they sleep in dust.
Their courage nerves a thousand living men. -Minot J. Savage
