May | Honoring our Military | A Message for Memorial Day

May 23, 2024

Memorial Day is a day etched in American tradition, a solemn pause to remember the brave men and women who laid down their lives in service to our nation. It's a day to reflect on their sacrifice, which has secured the freedoms we hold so dear. In his iconic 'Man in the Arena' quote, Theodore Roosevelt reminds us, 'It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who actually strives to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.'

At Dixon Financial Group, we join the nation in honoring these fallen heroes. Their courage and dedication inspire us every day. We remember their stories, courage, and unwavering commitment to defending our way of life. As Roosevelt said, 'It is far better to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor souls who neither know victory nor defeat.'1

But Memorial Day isn't just about remembering the fallen. It's also a day to celebrate the living heroes—our military's active and retired members. You have served our country with honor and distinction, and we are eternally grateful for that.

Your sacrifices, both large and small, have shaped the nation we know today. You've bravely defended our shores, secured peace across the globe, and embodied America's values: liberty, justice, and freedom for all. Roosevelt reminds us, 'The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood...' These words perfectly capture the spirit of our veterans and active military personnel. 2

God Bless America!
