Today,on Memorial Day we thought it important to stop and honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom and democracy. From the American Revolution to the war on terrorism in Iraq and Afghanistan, thousands upon thousands of brave men and women have left it all on the field of battle.
