While many see Memorial Day as an extended weekend we need to also acknowledge that this day serves as a day of remembrance for those lost their lives in service to our country.
For our brave heroes, take the time to remember the freedoms we enjoy today that came at a cost.
So, as you’re taking time this weekend to enjoy the company of your family, loved ones, and friends, please take a moment and bow your head to pay respect to the more than 600,000 American soldiers who gave all they had to give.
PS. As a reminder, the Portland Police Association Office will be closed on Monday, May 29, 2017 in observance of Memorial Day.
