From the American Revolution to the conflicts around the world today, U.S. troops have sacrificed for our nation’s values in peace and in war. On Memorial Day, we pause to reflect on those who gave their lives in defense of the nation. It’s a tradition that dates back to the Civil War, when veterans and non-veterans gathered to reflect on those who left us too soon.
Today we carry that tradition forward. Every year on Memorial Day, a national moment of remembrance takes place at 3:00 p.m. Our team at The Mission Continues paused to honor those who have been killed in the line of duty. We will never forget.
