Honoring Our Fallen Sisters This Memorial Day

Posted by Crystal Williams on May 22, 2014

Memorial Day is one of our nation’s most solemn and revered holidays— we extend our sincere gratitude to these servicemen and women in uniform who gave their lives so we might live in freedom. We honor their memory and pray for peace.

This is also a day when we would like to bring special attention to the sacrifice of our fallen sisters who have died during the war on terror. Since the war began there have been over 157 service women who have bravely perished in defense of our great country. A complete list of the fallen servicewomen can be found by visiting Women in Military Service in America (WIMSA) we invite you to take a moment and remember these women and consider making a donation to WIMSA Memorial to honor them.

We also encourage you to visit the Washington Post’s Faces of the Fallen. Faces of the Fallen provides information about each U.S. service member who died as a result of the War on Terror. Please take a moment to remember and honor these mothers, daughters, wives, sisters, and friends this Memorial Day.
