    WHEREAS, each year on the last Monday in May, Americans pause to observe Memorial Day, a National Holiday set aside in 1971, to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our nation; and

    WHEREAS, the men and women of our Armed Forces protect our borders, citizens, and allies; fight tyranny around the world; and defend the values that make our nation great; and

    WHEREAS, Alaska is home to servicemen and women, including veterans, from all branches of the military, and we are forever grateful to them and their families for their selfless contributions and sacrifices; and

    WHEREAS, Memorial Day provides us with an opportunity to honor those brave warriors who died to guarantee the liberties we continue to enjoy today, and to remind us of the true cost of our freedom, so we may never take it for granted; and

    WHEREAS, on this day, let us reflect on the sacrifices of our brave men and women who served and died for our country; honor their memory as American heroes; pray for the loved ones they left behind; and recommit to defending the nation they died to protect.

    NOW THEREFORE, I, Mike Dunleavy, GOVERNOR OF THE STATE OF ALASKA, do hereby proclaim May 25, 2020 as: Memorial Day in Alaska, and encourage all Alaskans to remember and honor our nation’s fallen soldiers, and to pray for the active duty men and women, and their families, who are serving our country today.
