War touches every life in every nation. Memorial Day is an opportunity to reflect on the lives of those who paid a terrible price in order to protect the freedoms we all enjoy.

Whatever plans you have this Memorial Day, we hope the stories we bring you will spark memories for you of people you know who have fought for this country.
