Memorial Day is a day to recognize loved ones, sacrifices made, legacies left behind
6,964 service members have been killed in action since September 11. If you are privileged enough to know a Gold Star family, one that has lost a service member in action, reach out to them. Ask about their loved one. Ask them what their son was like as a child. Ask about their daughter's deep commitment to her country. Help these families remember and honor their loved ones. And then carry those memories with you.
