Honor the Eternal Legacy of Our Fallen Heroes

May 24, 2024

This Memorial Day weekend, with deep gratitude, we thank the men and women who paid the ultimate price to secure the blessings of liberty in defense of our country.

Throughout each generation, freedom has faced assault – and at times the threat of extinction – from the forces of totalitarianism, statism, and collectivism. And each generation, America’s fighting forces have responded to the call to defend America as the birthplace of liberty and the world’s last, best hope for its preservation. The bravest among those have laid down their lives to ensure that we can live ours freely and in pursuit of happiness.

Please join me in remembering America’s fallen heroes and their families and in honoring their eternal legacy.

Jon Riches is a Commander in the U.S. Navy Reserve and the Vice President for Litigation at the Goldwater Institute.
