Memorial Day 2014, May 26, 2014
The Colorado State University community joins our nation today in honoring our women and men in military service and in remembering all those lost in fighting for this country that President Lincoln once called “the last best hope of earth.” As a community, we are incredibly proud of the veterans among our students, faculty, staff, and alumni and grateful for all that they and generations of others have given for our freedoms. We are grateful, as well, to their families, who have sacrificed so much on our behalf. I ask that we all take time today to remember and reflect, to celebrate those who returned and honor those who did not — because we must never forget.
