Today, Mystic Island American Legion Post #493 organized a memorial service in Little Egg Harbor to honor the fallen, and it was a privilege to join so many from the community in honoring those lost to war.
Memorial Day is a special day where we collectively, as a nation, pause to give honor and recognition to those who sacrificed in building and maintaining our Country. But on all days it should be incumbent upon each of us to remember their uncommon courage and practice gratitude them and the loved ones they left behind.
"Those who have long enjoyed such privileges as we enjoy forget in time that men have died to win them."
- Franklin D. Roosevelt
