Of the more than 16 million who served in World War 2, only 10% are still around. When you celebrate the holiday, take a moment to honor the men and women who wore and still wear our nation’s uniforms.
When we realize that America has not won any of the many wars since World War 2, and are still tangled in today’s international conflicts, it can be discouraging. We must face nuclear weapons in the hands of insane leaders, suicidal fanatics who kill children and other world challenges.
However, on Memorial Day we should still feel deep gratitude and praise for American men and women since 1776 who fought and died to preserve our freedom.
