The students, faculty, and staff of Homestead High School pause on this solemn Memorial Day to remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice to preserve America's ideals of freedom and democracy. 

"Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid. They have earned our undying gratitude. America will never forget their sacrifices." - President Harry S. Truman

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter the words, but to live by them.” - President John F. Kennedy 

"Let us dedicate ourselves today, and every day, to honoring those valiant Americans who died in service to their country. Let us gain strength from their sacrifice and devote ourselves to the peaceful pursuits which freedom allows and progress demands." - President Gerald R. Ford
