Nowhere in the US is the weight of Memorial Day more profoundly felt than in the Greater DC area. With the Pentagon and Arlington National Cemetery within a stones’ throw of the bustling Capitol of our great nation, not to mention numerous military bases in our area, we all have either lost someone in service to our country, or we know someone who has.

Memorial Day is so much more than a day for BBQ and summer fun. For those who feel the loss of loved ones, it’s a day of remembrance and honor. We, as a nation, are called to offer our thanks and prayers for those brave soldiers and sailors who never came home, while defending our freedom and our democracy.
