Memorial Day is this coming Monday, May 28. This is a long-standing holiday, so it does seem that too often we tend to overlook its significance. It's important to remember all those who have fought for our freedom and our way of life, be it 60 years ago or just yesterday. We must honor not just the men and women of our armed forces, but all Americans who put their lives on the line for all of us, every day. This Memorial Day please take time to remember, to pay tribute, to the members of our armed forces, our police officers, our firefighters, our emergency workers --- all of those caring, courageous men and women who defend and safeguard all that we hold dear.
