Happy Memorial Day–Belatedly

Memorial Day is more than the unofficial beginning of summer. With roots going back to the Reconstruction period, the holiday honors all those who have given their lives for the United States in the armed forces.

I must agree with the Poet:

Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori
“Sweet and proper it is to die on behalf of one’s homeland”
-Horace, Odes

To all who sacrificed, thank you.
