Memorial Day is a day to Remember and Honor all the brave Men and Women of our United States Armed Forces and most importantly those who gave all.
Our soldiers, currently serving and those who have served, fight each day for us so that we can live free with opportunities and privileges that sets us apart from many places in the world.
On a personal level, this remembrance has a profound meaning to me as it does for many of you. My father fought in World War II and the Korean War.
My brother, brother-in-law and some of my closest friends fought in the Vietnam War. While my family members came home safely, I lost friends to the war in Vietnam; and some of the ones that did come back home were never the same. They have seen more and given more than most of us can imagine.
