On this Memorial Day, I’d like to share a powerful photo from my father’s collection. This is why we honor our men and women each year – their sacrifices should never be forgotten.
If you are fortunate enough to still have a family member or friend who is a surviving WWII veteran, this might be a good day to sit down with them and talk about their service. Their voices are our link to this important time in history.

Japanese prisoners work between lines of American crosses. In the background is the airstrip and beyond, the hills where the fighting dragged on for so many weeks.
