Remember Why We Remember

As we gather this weekend with our families, perhaps roast a few hot dogs and lift a beer or two together, we should resist the temptation to make the long weekend simply an excuse to shop some sales and watch a bit more TV. Remember why we get an extra day off work. Remember the thousands of soldiers and sailors and airmen and Marines spending this weekend patrolling the far-off and remote corners of our world. Remember the sacrifices of people like soldiers Sgt. Eugene M. Aguon and Spc. Dwayne W. Flores.
