It is a history of unexpected heroes who answered the nation’s call to protect liberty and defend freedom where ever it was threatened. From battle fields of lush grassland to towering beachheads; from the open seas to desert sands, these men and women gave of themselves, not for fame, or fortune or personal reward but because they knew the true cost to humanity if they chose not answer that call to defend democracy.
On this Memorial Day, let our gratitude serve as an honor to those who are currently serving and all those who never returned home. It is because of those who were, and those who continue to be willing to protect freedom at any cost, that we are truly free.
May peace be with you and your family,
Suffolk County Legislator
