Celebrating Memorial Day and our heros...in light of where our country stands on freedom, I wonder how many soldiers, especially those who made the ultimate sacrifice, ever dreamed that those freedoms would be so abused. Imagine a soldier standing by while one of their countrymen burned the flag they followed into battle or that covered the coffin of a friend who was killed in the field. It's a brave and admirable thing they do to defend our right to freedoms that make a soldier cringe. That is the legacy of the American soldier...to die for our freedom to make choices...even foolish ones.
