Veterans are among the many heroes who deserve our respect and remembrance, thanks to their service. One of the ways that we respect those who make sacrifices for our country is by remembering them each year on Memorial Day.

Thank a Veteran. Visit the grave of a deceased Veteran. Or at least say a prayer for them:

“All Powerful God,
We honor today those men and women—
Our sons and daughters,
Husbands and wives,
Fathers, brothers, sisters, mothers—
Who have laid down their life for their country.
Whether weary or emboldened, quiet or defiant,
Vulnerable or ready when You called them home,
Their sacrifice is too humbling for words
except these uttered in prayer.
Loving Lord, bless them forever in Your eternal peace…
Cherish their spirit, honor their commitment,
send them our love,
and will never forget the service that they gave.”
