Memorial Day 2019: Remembering Service & Sacrifice

Memorial Day 2019: Remembering Service & Sacrifice

President Harry Truman’s Memorial Day message to the nation is as appropriate today as it was in 1945:

Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid. They have earned our undying gratitude. America will never forget their sacrifices.

Additionally, here at CPS we take every Memorial Day as an opportunity to recognize and thank service members associated with the CPS family:

Bob Musa’s son is currently serving in the US Marine Corps; Mike is at his permanent duty station in North Carolina.

We honor the service of:

Bob Strickland, US Air Force
Bob’s father: Robert Musa (US Marine Corps, retired and yes, that’s 2 generations!)
Chris’ father, Michael Lott (US Navy, retired)
Michelle’s father, Robert DuBois (US Air Force)
Michelle’s husband, Jerry Stone (US Navy)
Sean’s father, Chris Miyazaki (US Air Force, retired)
Troy’s brother, John (US Air Force)
Zoe’s father, Charles Miller, and brother, Wilson Miller (both: US Army)

Did you realize 50% of today’s high school youth aren’t aware of World Warr II? Why not take the time to encourage friends and family to remember — with a bbq, picnic, memorial park visit or concert, join a parade or run a race to support fundraising efforts?

Let us know who you are remembering this Memorial Day!
