Take time this Memorial Day to remember our nation's history of sacrifice
|Visit the Photo Place|

WE KNOW that Memorial Day is about much more than auto races, baseball games and hot dogs.
But it's easy for the true meaning of the holiday to slip from our grasp when we're lathered in suntan lotion and bug spray, playing volleyball with one hand and holding a chilled beverage in the other.
So this year, let's make a vow to remember.
Let's promise that sometime during the next several days we will seek out a quiet place--away from the laughing children and bowls of potato salad and baked beans--and let our minds revisit some of the places where young American soldiers died so that we may enjoy the quality of life we have today.
Lexington and Concord
Spotsylvania Court House
San Juan Hill
Ia Drang Valley
Now, let's start another list for Memorial Day 2004 and beyond.
Here's hoping your holiday is safe, fun and inspiring.
