“This Memorial Day weekend is not just a three-day break from work, but a time to reflect on those who loved our nation so much they laid down their lives for our freedoms. Since the 2001 terrorist attacks, 81 Tennesseans have given this ultimate sacrifice- joining history’s hallowed list of Volunteers who put the nation above themselves. May we each honor these fallen patriots and their brethren now serving, not just on this Memorial Day, but during every moment we enjoy our freedoms and way of life.” # # #
