San Antonio will always have a close-knit bond with the military and on a day like Memorial Day, that bond can seen everywhere – from the observances at places like Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery to the American flags flying over businesses and the homes of our residents. Today, we honor those that gave their lives in the wars and conflicts around the world, as well as those that lost their battles long after they came home. These men and women put their lives on the line without questioning, in order to protect the country they call home. Take a few moments today and think about the many who have fallen, whether they be your relatives and loved ones or people you’ve never met. They didn’t know your name when they were sent to foreign lands, but that never stopped them from giving you everything they had and paying the ultimate price for their belief that this country was worth fighting for. To all those have served and continue to serve, thank you. To those no longer with us, on Memorial Day, a special thanks and our thoughts go out to your families and loved ones who will miss you dearly today.
