Dear Friends,

This weekend marks the 146th observance of Memorial Day. While spending time with your family and loved ones this holiday weekend, I hope you will join me in commemorating our country's service members, both from Maryland and from across the country.

Following the conclusion of the Civil War in 1865, government leaders established an annual Decoration Day to commemorate the fallen Union and Confederate soldiers. In the years since, Decoration Day expanded to honor all fallen soldiers from every theater of war and became known as Memorial Day.

As we carry on this sacred tradition, the links below are just some examples of the different ways you can honor our troops this Memorial Day:
  • This weekend, communities across the country will celebrate Memorial Day with services at the grave sites of fallen service members. The National Cemetery Administration has compiled a list of cemeteries holding services on Memorial Day. Click here to find a memorial ceremony near you.
  • Memorial Day provides us with an opportunity to say thank you to the thousands of men and women enlisted in our armed forces. The United Services Organization (USO) is a non-profit dedicated to work that "lifts the spirits of America’s troops and their families". To donate to the USO, click here.
  • The Wounded Warrior Project is another organization that assists wounded service members and their families as they navigate the recovery process. Click here to find out how you can get involved with the Wounded Warrior Project's efforts.
I wish you and your family a wonderful holiday weekend as we remember the men and women whose sacrifices we honor on Memorial Day, who defended their country with valor in the face of unthinkable danger. We join together as a grateful nation to thank all those who are currently serving and who have served for their bravery and dedication.

Hope to see you there.
