We won’t be bringing you an ASPPA Connect newsletter on Monday, May 29, as our offices will be closed due to the observance of Memorial Day; it will return on Wednesday, May 31. In the meantime, we would like to share some presidential quotes related to the holiday.
“Each of the patriots whom we remember on this day was first a beloved son or daughter, a brother or sister, or a spouse, friend, and neighbor.” — George H. W. Bush, Memorial Day 1992
“Our nation owes a debt to its fallen heroes that we can never fully repay, but we can honor their sacrifice.” — Barack Obama, Memorial Day 2011
“Heroism is not only in the man, but in the occasion.” — Calvin Coolidge, Memorial Day, 1928
“For love of country, they accepted death.” — future President James A. Garfield, speaking at Arlington National Cemetery on the first Memorial Day, May 30, 1868
