May 2016: Honor and Remember Month

WHEREAS, the freedom and security that citizens of the United States enjoy today is the direct result of the bloodshed and continued vigilance of the United States Armed Forces throughout the history of our great nation; and,

WHEREAS, these sacrifices of the members of the United States Armed Forces and their family members have preserved the liberties

that have enriched this nation making it unique in the world community; and,

WHEREAS, May is nationally proclaimed as Honor and Remember Month for all of our fallen military, all generations, all causes of death and service branches;

NOW, THEREFORE, I, Rick Snyder, governor of Michigan, do hereby proclaim May 2016 as Honor and Remember Month in Michigan.
