Best wishes to all on this Memorial Day. It is a sobering holiday as we continue to lose men and women abroad in countries like Afghanistan. The cost to these heroes and their families is a debt that we can never fully repay. However, as we enjoy the time with our families, it is a day that reminds us of what they have given to us in their service to this country.
President Obama has been pushing to keep U.S. troops in Afghanistan over objections from Afghan leaders, a campaign that continued with his visit on Memorial Day with our troops.
I will not repeat my objections to the two wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. We can disagree on such wars while joining together on this day to honor the warriors.
Thank you to all of our contributors and regulars who have served or have children or spouses serving this country. Best wishes for a safe and joyful holiday.
