One of the most rewarding things about living and working in Killeen is our proud association with Fort Hood and all the fine men and women who serve our nation with such bravery and sacrifice.
At this busy time, as we prepare to move into the last week of the school year, how fitting it is that we pause to observe Memorial Day and honor all those who have given their lives in our nation's service.
Don't let Monday's holiday be just another day for you.
Take some time to reflect upon how blessed we are to live in this free country, and how fortunate we are to have the opportunity to pursue an education to prepare ourselves for a bright future.
I hope you will follow this link and read up on the history of Memorial Day.
All the best to you,
