FORGOTTEN MAN I.E. MEN MEMORIAL DAY LISTING REMEMBRANCE 2020

Today "Memorial Day" recognizes those who died while serving in

the U.S. military. We cannot let fade, into the past, the reality that previous generations made sacrifices which seem unimaginable today and that such selflessness continues to this day.

To their credit, many Americans have never really forgotten the men and women who gave the final measure to protect the freedoms many still hold so dear, yet others take for granted.

So, TODAY, if only for a moment, right now, take the time to read the following list. Reflect upon how many Americans have died to ensure the freedoms and opportunities we enjoy today.

Whether you agreed with the decision to put our men and women in harm’s way or not, honor them with a prayer or a toast. This day is for them.

Below are some of the major conflicts that have claimed

the lives of more than 1 million Americans.
