MEMORIAL DAY “All Gave Some, Some Gave All” Video
MEMORIAL DAY – Honoring the men and women who died while serving in our Military.
Arlington National Cemetery has evolved from a place of necessity to a national shrine to those who have honorably served our Nation during times of war – including every military conflict in American history – and during times of peace. The cemetery is the final resting place for service members, veterans and their families.
In remembrance of all those who made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our nation, this Memorial Day message “ALL GAVE SOME, SOME GAVE ALL” framed by the Battlefield Cross – symbolically used for fallen soldiers whose lives were lost in battle was created to remind, inspire and honor the lives of fallen servicemen and women.
Thank you U.S. Navy Mass Communication Specialist 1st Class Sarah Villegas for the video.
