We will always remember. We will always be proud. We will always be prepared, so we may always be free.
~ President Ronald Reagan, remarks on the 40th Anniversary of D-Day, June 6, 1984
My best wishes for a safe, enjoyable and, above all, meaningful Memorial Day weekend.
There are many ceremonies, parades, and other observances taking place across the region to honor our veterans, past and present -- and to pay tribute to the brave men and women protecting and making the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms at this very moment.
See the links below for a listing of many of them:
