On this Memorial Day, the Alamo Colleges District pays tribute to those who gave their lives in the service of their country.

It reminds us of the freedom we cherish is never free. It has been paid for with the lives of our men and women in the armed forces. It is a moment of collective reflection on the noble sacrifices of those who gave the last measure of devotion in service of our ideals and in the defense of our country.

Today and every day, we honor those who courageously gave their lives, and remember as well the families and loved ones they left behind. Even though Memorial Day observances may be constrained by our current situation, we can still take a moment to honor the fallen in our hearts.
