My fellow Alabamians, today, as your governor, I stand here to honor and remember the brave men and women who have given their lives in service to our nation

Memorial Day is a time for gratitude and profound respect for those who have worn our country's uniform.

We remember the fallen from battles long past and those recent.

We remember those from Mobile to Huntsville – and those from sea to shining sea – whose courageous spirits rose in defense of liberty and justice.

Y'all, let's educate our children about the valor and sacrifice that has shaped our great country.

Let's ensure that every veteran and every family member know that their loss is recognized... and their bravery revered

As we lay wreaths and lower flags, remember we must live up to the ideals those heroes fought and died for.

Although it can never be said enough, thank you...

My fellow Alabamians, let us always remember freedom is not free.

May God continue to bless each of you, the great state of Alabama and these United States of America!"
