Belated Memorial Day Thanks
The ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan continue to be waged. As we have such a large country, the impact for those of us without loved one's in harms way sometimes seems remote.
As of yesterday more than 4,563 men and women have lost their lives in service to our country.
This number includes 7 men and women from the District of Columbia, 80 men and women from Maryland and 136 from Virginia. Far, Far too many.
