The best thing we can do this Memorial Day weekend is to honor the legacy of our dead heroes by fighting to keep the freedoms they’ve already given us.Carl Jackson, guest host on The Dennis Prager Show, May 28, 2021
Look at photos of soldiers in previous wars, pre-modern era, when men were drafted for service. Many also volunteered. These soldiers were young. Most were younger than my daughters in college and high school. If you go back to the Revolutionary and Civil War, many of those boys were 14.
Carl Jackson has the right idea, reminding us to continue renewing the value of their sacrifice.
