Memorial Day Message
Ricky Lewis - 42nd Grand Basileus. OPPF Editorial Board.
Today, as we gather to celebrate Memorial Day, let’s take a moment to reflect and honor the incredible sacrifices made by our brave men and women in uniform. They have selflessly dedicated their lives to protecting our freedom, and we owe them our deepest gratitude.
Join us in showing unwavering support and love for all military personnel and their families who make countless sacrifices every day. Their strength and resilience are truly inspiring, and they deserve our utmost respect.
A special recognition goes to the Men of Omega who have not only served with distinction but continue to serve in all branches of the military. Since the early years of Omega, in the fell clutch of conflict or humanitarian relief, Omega men have stood strong and placed themselves in harm’s way – leading and persevering, in selfless service. As we observe this Memorial Day, let us be mindful of those brothers who paid with their lives and sadly left behind family, friends, brothers, and loved ones. It remains “duty from one brother to another” to preserve their legacy and to keep their families uplifted.Let’s come together to remember and honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Today, we not only celebrate, but we also remember their courage, bravery, and the immeasurable impact they have left behind.
It is with sincere pride that we salute these brave souls for their “service and sacrifice.”
