We Remember

Today, 72 years later, we salute those veterans who served at Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941.  As we recall the “day which will live in infamy”, we pause to have a moment of remembrance for those that gave their lives, for those that survived and for those that followed after in service to our Nation.

The Freedom Bell in Washington, DC – cast in bronze with metal from the World Trade Center – rang today in honor of those who served in the armed forces.  Skydivers also unfurled American flags over Pearl Harbor.

A heartfelt thank-you from a grateful people is not enough for those that continue to maintain our freedoms and ideals.  We will continue to support these brave men and women and let them know that we care.
