Today is a day set aside to remember those who have given the ultimate in service of our country and in the defense of freedom. Generations upon generations of men and women have sacrificed their lives in effort to protect and preserve the freedoms we enjoy as Americans. The saying is certainly true that freedom will never be free. The cost of freedom is very high, and it is with great gratitude that we pause as a nation today in remembrance of that cost.
At FirstFleet we are proud of the men and women who represent our great nation in armed service. We remember those who have fallen in battle with great honor and we celebrate those who are in service today with hearts of gratitude.
It is our hope that wherever you find yourself today you will be able to pause for a moment and reflect on the blessings of the freedom we enjoy and that you are able to find some way to honor those who made it possible.
I don't have to tell you how fragile this precious gift of freedom is. Every time we hear, watch, or read the news, we are reminded that liberty is a rare commodity in this world. – President Ronald Reagan
