Today we celebrate Memorial Day in the United States. While many mark this day as the unofficial start of Summer, its true meaning is so much more. Memorial Day is the day we pause to honor the Americans who have given their lives during military service to our great Country. No matter what your personal feelings are towards any of our military actions, current or past, the sacrifice of these men and women is undiminished. You can honor the warrior without honoring the war. Take a few minutes out of your holiday activities today and remember these fallen heroes. We should also keep in mind those that were left behind when previous wars were declared ended.
"It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather, we should thank God that such men lived."
-- George Patton
