Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman focused on Memorial Day recently in his weekly column. Here is an excerpt from that column.
“The Memorial (Day) Holiday offers a chance to pause and remember those who are no longer with us, particularly those who made the ultimate sacrifice to our nation while serving in America's Armed Forces. I want to encourage you to attend one of the many observances that will occur across Nebraska in our local communities and help us honor the memories and sacrifices of our service members.”
