While we enjoy the simple pleasures of a backyard barbecue, or, trip to the beach afforded us during Memorial Day, let us not forget its true purpose. Our nation is rooted in a strong, viable military, quick to spring into action to preserve and defend its liberty. This holiday seeks to honor those who have died in their pursuit of this treasured ideal. Lady Justice salutes all armed forces personnel who serve our interests, both here and abroad. Thank you!
