This weekend, as you celebrate Memorial Day with your family and friends, I hope you take a few moments to reflect on the meaning of this holiday, honor the memories of our fallen servicemen and women, and thank the families whose sons and daughters cannot be with us today due to their service abroad. Their sacrifice makes our freedom and prosperity possible, and we have a duty to serve them as they have served us. That is why at the State Treasurer's Office we have partnered with local lenders to offer low-interest Citizen Soldier loans to military personnel who need help making ends meet before or after deployment. Children who lose a parent in the war on terror are eligible for our Fallen Heroes Scholarships. For more information join our Fallen Heroes Facebook group.
These are the small ways we give back to those who serve, sacrifice and fight on our behalf. You can give back, too, by helping us spread the word about these worthwhile programs. Forward this email to friends and family in the Armed Forces, Military Reserves or National Guard, and together we can ensure that our servicemen and women, and their children, remain financially secure.
