Memorial Day was earlier this week. Now what?
How many times did you hear Lee Greenwoodâ€™s song on the radio? How many times did you get a lump in your throat while singing along? I ask again, now what?
It certainly is fitting that we as a nation set aside a day each year to commemorate our nationâ€™s war dead â€“ especially in a time of war. But at the same time, Memorial Day must be more than just the unofficial start of summer. It is truly a day whose significance grows with every life sacrificed on the fields of battle. As Americaâ€™s Ambassadors in Blue, Airmen of all ranks need to educate and remind others that every time a hero comes home in a coffin, it is Memorial Day.
