Yes, I’m spending the day with family, doing the usual things that people do on Memorial Day — cooking out, spending some time outside, seeing a movie...

But I did want to take a moment to remember the true reason for the holiday. Remembering those who have died in service to this nation, and those who continue to do so.

Furthermore, I would like to follow John Wheeler’s lead in extending that remembrance to those not only killed, but also seriously wounded in such service.
