Every person who lives on the planet is dealing with COVID-19 in some way, and is trying to figure out how to move forward. It has been termed on TV as finding the “new normal.” While things have indeed changed, their is also a foundation in which we stand upon.
Through out our history Americans were forced to face moments in time. From the reconstruction after the Civil War, to the bombing of Pearl Harbor, or watching the towers fall on 9/11. Each time we were able to move forward because we put service before self. It is this foundation of service to one another that will continue to guide us. How ever you chose to serve we thank you. But USDVA wants to particularly remember this Memorial Day, all the men and women who put on the uniform and fought and died for our freedom, their sacrifice will not be forgotten, and their example will guide us through any challenges to come.
Without memory, there is no culture. Without memory, there would be no civilization, no society, no future.Elie Wiesel
