Rep. Fallin to Present Medals During Memorial Day Ceremony

Rep. Mary Fallin has a post today on The Hill Newspaper’s Congressional Blog reminding us that one of America’s most solemn holidays is almost upon us. Fallin writes:

“As our Memorial Day weekend approaches, I believe it is important to pay tribute and honor to the men and women in the military who have served our country…It will be our great honor to present medals to our deserving military veterans in a special ceremony May 23rd at the Oklahoma History Center.”

Memorial Day has always had special meaning for me. I was born on May 30th, the original day that was set aside for the holiday. As a child, my parents always reminded me on my birthday that I was enjoying my presents and freedom that day, because someone else gave their life in defense of this country. Rep. Fallin reminds us what Memorial Day is really all about.
