Memorial Day and the Ultimate Sacrifice
Memorial Day is an all-American day -- a day for family gatherings, picnics and the opening of the summer vacation season. But it's also a day with the most serious of backdrops, when the nation pays tribute to the millions of men and women who gave their lives so that we could live freely.
We take time to honor our fellow citizens who made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation – sacrifices that continue to be made in 2016.
Millions of Americans fought and died for our freedom and liberty. Let us remember their sacrifices not just on this special day but all year long.

Civil Air Patrol cadets of Braden Squadron 807
This week, I had the privilege of meeting with Civil Air Patrol cadets of Braden Squadron 807 in Bangor and taking part in their awards ceremony. The leadership, discipline and work ethic of these young men and women are outstanding.
It was my particular honor to present Cadet Second Lieutenant Nathaniel Peterson with the General Billy Mitchell Award, the second milestone in the cadet program. To earn the Billy Mitchell Award, Cadet Peterson demonstrated his skills and knowledge by passing comprehensive exams on leadership theory and aerospace topics. He also completed the Cadet Physical Fitness Test and met many other specific leadership requirements. Only 15 percent of Civil Air Patrol cadets will obtain the General Billy Mitchell Award.
I want to extend my sincerest well wishes and congratulations to Cadet Peterson as he continues to progress through his rank, develop new leadership abilities and further his education.

Families and friends visiting Pennsylvania’s popular outdoor spots over the Memorial Day holiday weekend can enjoy a day of free fishing.

PA Fish and Boat Commission wants your Feedback
The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission has created a new webpage to submit questions and opinions about the Commission, fishing and boating, and the Commonwealth’s aquatic resources.
Known as “The Fishing Hole,” the new webpage invites the public to share their thoughts on topics such as Fishing/Stocking, Fishing Regulations, Boat Registration/Titling, Boating and Access Areas and more.
