This upcoming weekend marks the opportunity for us to observe the Memorial Day holiday. Americans across the country will gather, not only to enjoy time with family and friends, but also to remember the brave men and women who sacrificed their lives defending our great nation. To honor these heroes, the Coalition wishes to share the following Memorial Day prayer of remembrence:We Remember We remember the many brave men and womenwho have given their livesthrough the history of our countryto protect us from danger and harmWe remember all those who sustained injuryin mind and/or body in the course of their serviceWe salute all those who served in the military.–   Author Unknown          These pictures were taken on Memorial Day in 2016 at the Chattanooga National Cemetery while I was on the way to pick up my daughter from the University of Alabama.

As our nation spends valuable time with loved ones this weekend, we hope all have an opportunity to set aside a quiet moment to honor and remember those fallen Americans who laid down their lives protecting our freedom.

From all of us at the Coalition, we wish you and your families a safe Memorial Day weekend.
