From In Homeland Security comes a reminder of what Memorial Day is all about.
“Why we should remember Memorial Day may be a strange question to contemplate. But as we approach this most solemn of all American holidays, far too many of us will think only of barbecues and the kickoff to summer. How many of us will think of those service members who made the ultimate sacrifice so that we are free to do all the things we want this Memorial Day?
“How many of us have a personal connection to a member of the armed forces? Do we even understand why someone joins the armed forces today?”
Good questions, with solemn answers.
