Jeff Jones with Colonel Amy Bumgarner, Commanding Officer US Air Force Special Investigations Academy, Federal Law Enforcement Training, Glynco, GA , and Linda J Seawell, Veteran's Council of the Golden Isles "American Patriot Award" recipient, at Glynn County's annual Memorial Day Remembrance.
"Memorial Day is a time to pause, honor, and remember those who paid the ultimate price to protect America and defend freedom around the world. Memorial Day began at the national level on May 30, 1868, as Decoration Day, with a ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery to honor fallen Civil War soldiers. In fact, this weekend marks the 150th anniversary of that first “Memorial Day” remembrance, when Congressman James Garfield—who would later become president—addressed a crowd of more than 5,000 at Arlington Cemetery. This tradition continued to grow, and following World War I, Decoration Day became a day of remembrance of all soldiers, sailors, and Marines who died in service to their nation, not just the Civil War."Read more

From the world’s busiest airport to the fastest growing container port in America, Georgia leads the nation in moving people and goods. That didn’t happen by accident.
On the contrary, for generations, Georgians have invested in the infrastructure necessary to facilitate our forward momentum.
Recently, we have invested in deepening the Port of Savannah with a quarter of a billion dollars in state funding. We have also modernized our funding for roads and bridges through the Transportation Funding Act of 2015 (HB 170).
We have planned prudently and invested wisely, but we still have more work to do. And, for the first time in many decades, we have an ally in Washington, D.C.Read more
