Memorial Day weekend has come and gone. On this last Tuesday in May we should be careful, however, to make sure the practice of honoring our fallen heroes is not relegated to only one or two weekends every year.
Memorial Day commemorates the loss of men and women who proudly served their country. In most instances, we know when, where, and how the soldier died. What is never clear, however, is why each did what they did. What was the reason or the clarion call for them? Why did they go?
