Memorial Day has always been a special time for me given my family’s military connections; however, this year especially living around Washington, D.C. has proven that the commitment and sacrifice of our men and women in the military is not forgotten. I encourage all of my readers to thank those who have bravely defended our freedom both here and abroad and find out ways they can help our Veterans once they return by visiting the US Department of Veteran Affairs. Pictured below is a flag that hangs in Grand Central Terminal in New York City.
