Senator Winner offers his thoughts on the observance of Memorial Day.

Americans have observed Memorial Day for over a century, since the time of the Civil War. 

It remains a grounding, powerful, and solemn occasion when citizens gather to honor our veterans, to recall their sacrifices, and to remember that American soldiers still serve to protect freedom and preserve peace throughout the world.

This weekend Americans will gather in small cemeteries.  We will come together in city parks and town squares and village greens in poignant remembrance.
