Statement from Alvin Brown on Memorial Day  
JACKSONVILLE — In honor of Memorial Day, Mayor Alvin Brown released the following statement:

“Memorial Day is a powerful reminder of the brave men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice as they served our country and fought to secure peace in the world. As a nation, we are eternally indebted to them and grateful for their service and selfless courage. We can never repay the sacrifice our fallen service members have paid, but must strive to be a nation worthy of their sacrifice. On Memorial Day and everyday, let us honor their service through steadfast support for all of our men and women in uniform, veterans and their families. Let us resolve to give them the resources, healthcare and economic opportunities they’ve earned. And May God bless our fallen heroes, their families, and all who still serve and put their lives on the line for all of us.”
