In Memoriam

As you fire up that barbecue and kick off the start of summer this Memorial Day weekend, ponder these facts, courtesy of the Veterans Affairs Department: More than 42.3 million people have served in the U.S. military during wartime since the Revolutionary War, and 1.2 million of them died in service. There are 16.5 million living wartime veterans, plus another 8.2 million from various peacetime eras.
