Memorial Day

Today is a day to remember and honor those who have fallen defending this country. Sometimes the life of a soldier intersects with the life of an athlete. As with Ted Williams and other players who left pro sports to fight in WWII.

Here is a story of Pat Tillman, who gave up millions to serve, and ending up giving his life. He is just one of the 4,514 who have died in the Middle East. If you see a soldier today, buy him a beer or shake their hand. He/She is the reason we have the day off. And they're the reason we have the freedom to enjoy the the day.
