Governor Markell’s Weekly Message: Memorial Day – Remembering Those Who Sacrifice
DOVER – In his weekly message, Governor Markell thanks military families and focuses on the importance of remembering those who gave their lives so we could enjoy our freedom.
“This Memorial Day weekend gives us time to look forward to the new season ahead filled with family activities. But it’s also important to pause – to remember those families who still grieve the loss of a son, daughter, father, mother, brother or sister who gave their life so we could enjoy our freedom,” said Governor Markell. “ So many Delaware soldiers have died while during duties in Afghanistan or Iraq. The liberty we enjoy today was won with their blood, and we cannot honor them enough.”
