This Memorial Day we honor all who served and sacrificed for our freedom. We reflect on the members of the United States Armed Forces: The Army, The Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard. Many of those who have served in these branches have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. It is in memoriam that we honor those brothers, sisters, fathers, mothers and dear friends who gave their lives to preserve our freedom and ensure our prosperity. To all the families of Irish America whose loved ones have bravely heeded the call to serve our nation, we extend our most sincere gratitude.

If you would like to share a story of a family member or friend that has served our country please send an email to submit@irishamerica.com. Read the stories of service men and women in the links below.
