Memorial Day has special meaning at Hammock. We are privileged to work closely with two national organizations dedicated to preserving the honor and legacy of those who, through their valor and service, helped to establish our country and to preserve it today. Honoring those who paid the ultimate price so that we may enjoy the freedoms and liberties we have is something we are able to express in each issue of American Spirit, the magazine of the Daughters of the American Revolution, and Semper Fi, the magazine of the Marine Corps League. Service in defense of our nation and our liberty is integral to both organizations, and the loss of any service member is keenly felt and solemnly observed. We join with these two great organizations in honoring those who sacrificed all for their country, and also the families of those valiant warriors.
