Memorial Day is the day Americans officially remember veterans who died on active duty. My family has a long history of military service dating back to the American Revolution. We’ve had at least one sailor, soldier, airmen or marine serve in every war since then.
Some died for their country. We’re not unique; just visit any national cemetery for that reminder.
Please observe a moment of silence today and thank these men and women for their ultimate sacrifice. Our ability to enjoy barbeques, the beach or even shopping today is thanks to them.
