  • Memorial Day honors veterans, those fighting for Americans’ freedom

    For many Americans, Memorial Day (Monday, May 30) signals the beginning of summer.  But, more importantly, Memorial Day is a day for us to remember and give thanks to all those who have given their lives in service to our nation and to preserve the freedoms we enjoy.

    As a West Point graduate and former Army Ranger, I am especially mindful this Memorial Day of our troops serving in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, around the world and here at home.
