Thanks for Memo­rial Day spe­cial

Maryland Independent - - Community Forum - Bernadette Smith, Wel­come

I would like to thank the Mary­land In­de­pen­dent for your spe­cial Memo­rial Day edi­tion, which I read from cover to cover.

The mov­ing sto­ries of some of the brave men and women from South­ern Mary­land who proudly served our coun­try are both gut wrench­ing and in­spir­ing.

We’ve heard it said many times that free­dom is not free. Memo­rial Day is a time to re­mem­ber our fallen he­roes who made the ul­ti­mate sac­ri­fice. Let us al­ways re­mem­ber and honor them.

In the words of Gen. Ge­orge S. Pat­ton, “It is fool­ish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.”
