Captain Shirley A. May kept her remarks brief Monday morning, but her message was clear. One of the best ways to honor the fallen this Memorial Day is by providing the best possible care to those who are injured. She encouraged those in attendance to live each day in gratitude for the gift given by those who have died while serving the country.
