Amid the family gatherings and barbecues today, be sure to remember those that have died for our freedom.
My generation is really the first post-draft generation--the first generation of which military service was not required. Two of my siblings serve in the military. Nobody in my family has given their life in the line of duty. Too many people are unable to say that.
Today is not a day that we honor those that serve (we'll do that in November), it is the day that we honor those that were called on to die for their country--for our country--the United States of America.
