Honoring Those Who Gave the Ultimate Sacrifice


As we celebrate Memorial Day, we remember the courageous men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our nation and our way of life.

On Friday, I had the honor of joining the 249th Engineering Battalion. Lead by First Sergeant Jason Ashurst and starting at 4:30 a.m., they marched over 23 miles from Fort Belvoir to Washington D.C. There they visited the Korean War, Vietnam War, and World War II memorials to lay wreaths to honor fallen soldiers.

From my family to yours, please have a safe and happy Memorial Day.
