Local view: If we can’t honor war dead, we’re lost as a nation
What is Memorial Day? What is it, really? Memorial Day is a day of “remembrance” for all soldiers, veterans and every American citizen. It is a day on which we as a nation honor our war dead — and only our war dead. It is to remember people who died during a time of war or on battlefields, preserving our nation’s sovereignty and interests.
