On this Memorial Day, we remember the sacrifices of the Americans that have served in our armed forces. Our father and two uncles were part of the Greatest Generation who served in a world war, and lived to build a country that sent men to the moon, and to prevail in the Cold War.
We need to be mindful every day of the tremendous sacrifices of those who are serving in our armed forces around the world, and the sacrifices of their families, especially those who have died. We owe it to them above all not to be reckless and arrogant when we put our military forces in harm's way.
