George W. Bush on Memorial Day 2014: ‘May we always honor them’

George W. Bush 44 Memorial DayBy Lynn R. Mitchell

George W. Bush, 43rd President of the United States, honored America’s fallen heroes:

“On Memorial Day, America’s thoughts go to the courageous men and women of the United States Armed Forces who gave their lives for the country they love. They defended our Nation, liberated the oppressed, and served the cause of liberty. Every moment we live in freedom was secured by their sacrifice, and every American is in their debt. We can never repay what they gave for this country, but on this holiday, we acknowledge that debt by showing our respect and gratitude.

“Laura and I join a grateful Nation in paying tribute to the brave citizens who laid their lives down for our liberty. May we always honor them. May we always embrace their families. And may we always be faithful to who they were and what they fought for.

“May God bless our troops, veterans, and the families who stand beside them. And may God continue to bless America.”

May we never forget….
