SUBJ/MEMORIAL DAY//
GENTEXT/REMARKS/1.  Memorial Day is set aside as a national day of remembrance to honor those who gave their lives in service to our country.  In observance of this solemn day, I ask all Marines to join me in honoring and celebrating those who sacrificed all for our nation, our ideals, and our beloved Corps.
2.  Our Corps remains engaged in operations around the world.  We must be ever ready to answer our Nation’s call, as past generations of Marines have always done.  This requires the dedication of every Marine to maintain a continual state of readiness.  On duty or off, vigilance and sound judgment is required in all that you do.  Do not let carelessness or poor decisions keep you from the fight.
3.  Semper Fidelis, Robert B. Neller, General, U.S. Marine Corps, Commandant of the Marine Corps.//
