Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R- Wyo, is encouraging all Americans to join him in honoring those who gave their lives in the fight for freedom and those continuing to serve and protect our nation this Memorial Day, May 26, 2008.
“On this day in cities and towns all across the country there will be parades, wreath laying and other similar ceremonies. These activities and many more will be held to remind us of our neighbors, friends and family who lost their lives in the service of our nation during the wars our nation has fought from the American Revolution to the current War on Terrorism.
“Diana and I thank and remember all of those who have given their all for the cause of freedom. We are thinking of our current servicemen and women and praying for their safe return. We also pray for the families of those serving our country and appreciate their strength when a loved one takes the call to duty,” said Enzi.
Enzi plans to participate in Memorial Day events in Chugwater.
Since the Civil War this sacred day has been reserved to recognize, respect and honor America’s sons and daughters who died serving their country. For more information regarding the history of Memorial Day or for ideas on how to commemorate our heroes log onto www.usmemorialday.org.
