From the OCGOP Chairman


May 24, 2020


Memorial Day is a special day to remember, honor and pay respect to all those who have given their lives in service to America.  These brave men and women sacrificed everything to make American the greatest country in the world.

While you are out with family and friends or by yourself, just take a moment to appreciate and be grateful for the freedoms we share and enjoy because of those whose shoulders we stand on today.


“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died.  Rather we should thank God such men lived”

                                                            General George S Patton


Wishing you a safe and blessed Memorial Day


Waddy Davis, Colonel, US Army Special Forces

Chairman, Orange County Republican Party
