This coming Monday, America will honor the memory of our military heroes past and present.
Times have changed in the way America now fights its wars, volunteers instead of inductees now wear our military uniforms. But, that in no way minimizes the sacrifices our citizens in uniform make and that of their loved ones.
One has to feel that our fallen service men and women are even more heroic since they all volunteer to protect the stars and stripes of their own free will.
Like our revolutionary patriots, our volunteers in uniform deserve extra recognition for their sacrifice.
