There aren't really enough words to pay tribute to the men and women who serve our country. But on holidays dedicated to their service, Americans certainly try to make it known just how grateful they are for the freedoms they have been granted because of them. It's no surprise that people turn to inspirational words to show their patriotic gratitude, but if you are seeking something from the leaders of this country, then you might want to take a look at these Memorial Day quotes from presidents.
Whether you look to one of our earliest presidents who reminds you that "eternal vigilance is the price of freedom" or President Barack Obama who said we must hold our patriots' memories close to our hearts, you will find there is no shortage of inspiring words to mark this upcoming Memorial Day on May 28.
And, perhaps, it is most important to remember the words of George H. W. Bush when he said, "The loss of these Americans — indeed, the loss of any human life to war — fills us with sorrow and with strengthened resolve to work for peace."
Because the promise of freedom and peace for this country are what those brave service members are fighting for, and it's the reason we salute them — on Memorial Day and always.
