Honor the Heroes Who Sacrificed Everything in Defense of Liberty

May 26, 2023

This Memorial Day weekend, with humble gratitude, we thank the men and women who paid the ultimate price for liberty.

As President Reagan reminded us, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.” And without the incredible sacrifices made by American forces—over centuries and throughout the world—freedom would have been extinct long ago.

So, this weekend we have the privilege of paying special gratitude to those who fought and died for our nation. We do so by living free and full lives and by enjoying the many blessings of liberty. And while our sacrifice will never match their sacrifice, we also pay tribute by fighting to ensure that a nation conceived in liberty, and dedicated to its preservation, endures.

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

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