On this Memorial Day, military veteran and Gold Star father Tom Manion writes about the courage and sacrifice of his son and countless others.  We honor them; we will never forget them.  

As Ronald Reagan said on the cliffs of Pointe du Hoc when he commemorated the fortieth anniversary of the invasion of Normandy:

[L]et us make a vow to our dead. Let us show them by our actions that we understand what they died for. Let our actions say to them the words for which [General] Matthew Ridgway listened: "I will not fail thee nor forsake thee."

Strengthened by their courage and heartened by their value [valor] and borne by their memory, let us continue to stand for the ideals for which they lived and died.

Thank you very much, and God bless you all.

Indeed.  Thank you very much, and God bless you all.  May America always continue to be worthy of your courage and your sacrifice.
