While we gather with friends and family for the long Memorial Day weekend, take a silent moment to honor the soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines and members of Coast Guard who have sacrificed their lives in the defense of this great nation. From the founding of this nation on the battlefields of the American colonies to the current battlefields of Iraq, Afghanistan and places we will not know of for years to come, this country has had no shortage of men and women willing to fight for the cause of freedom. The cause of freedom is a constant struggle against the darkness of tyranny, oppression and hatred; it is an ongoing struggle that often requires a call to arms and the loss of our finest and bravest citizens.
Salute them. Remember them. Honor them.
