Memorial Day

Memorial Day; It's not about car races, BBQ's, or pistol matches. It's about remembering the people who, by giving their lives, allowed us to have the freedom and liberty we now enjoy.

People like Sgt. 1st Class Paul Smith, an engineer Soldier who posthumously received the Medal of Honor for his actions in Iraq. It is the first Medal of Honor given since Somalia in 1993 , and only the third awarded since the Vietnam War.

Here's his story. You should go read it, and be thankful that people like these still exist.......
