I've been a fan of Story Corps for a while now. So many extraordinary stories are lives by ordinary folks and through this project their stories are recorded in their own words and shared with the public. On Friday NPR featured this one. It shares an angle on soldiers who make the ultimate sacrifice that few of us consider. Apparently, even the military doesn't give it much thought, which makes it all the more sad. On this day, amidst whatever picnicking and relaxing you enjoy, please take time to remember those who gave their lives. May they all rest in peace and may we all work toward a day when no one must make such a sacrifice.
