Memorial Day is almost upon us, and while this day may bring to mind BBQ, baseball and the start of summer, I hope we all take a moment to reflect on the real reason for this holiday – the remembrance of lives lost in the service of our country.

My mother and I recently brought my niece to visit Washington D.C.. One of the highlights of the trip was visiting the World War II Memorial. This National Memorial honors the 16 million who served in the U.S. armed forces during World War II, the more than 400,000 who died and all who supported the war effort from home. It is a beautiful Memorial and humbling to see, set in stone, the major battles that my grandfather and great uncles fought across both Europe and the Pacific.
