As a veteran, Memorial Day holds a special place with me. Some of the bravest and honorable people I ever met serve in the military. The sacrifices they make to protect this country defy description.
Let us remember our troops as we BBQ or watch parades. Remember the time they spend away from their friends, wives/husbands and children. Remember those deployed throughout the world. Remember those who return home changed and remember those who do not return.
End of speech.
