Memorial Day Letter From Airborne Signal Chapter Chairperson

Paratroopers,

 

This past week, we were scheduled to be celebrating our great Division with All American Week 2020. Instead we found ourselves in yet another battle, fighting an invisible enemy.

 

This Memorial Day weekend, we have the opportunity to pause and reflect on our Nation’s fallen. Along with fewer official events scheduled, Memorial Day 2020 will no doubt look different for you than years past, with fewer BBQs or vacations planned.  What hasn’t changed, though, is the solemn/sober nature of this occasion.

 

In 1868, Army MG John Logan issued General Order No. 11 designating a day in late May for the purpose of “decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country.” Local observances to honor the dead had been conducted in towns around the country for several years before the order was published, but an official day had yet to be recognized. Accordingly, the order said that “in this observance no form of ceremony is prescribed, but posts and comrades will in their own way arrange such fitting services and testimonials of respect as circumstances may permit.” I ask that you, in your “own way”, do the same this weekend and reflect.

 

For many of us who have lost friends in service to the Nation, this is a very personal weekend. Be sure to tell their stories to your loved ones, keeping your friend's memory alive and honoring their sacrifice. It's also a special opportunity for us to show love and support to their family members with a call or a kind note reinforcing that the loss we grieve was not in vain. Pay respects while celebrating lives in pursuit of the most noble of patriotic callings.

 

Remember our fallen always!

 

Airborne, All the Way!
