Happy Memorial Day, Remember our Veterans

The Assocated Press reports a statement made in Kabul, Afghanistan to mark Memorial Day.

"We reflect on those who have gone before us. We reflect on their service on behalf of our great nation," said Brig. Gen. Lewis A. Craparotta, who commands a Marine division in Afghanistan's southern Helmand province. "We should also remember those serving today who embody that same commitment of service and sacrifice. They are committed to something greater than themselves and they muster the physical and moral courage to accomplish extraordinary feats in battle."
