Enjoy the extra day off. Enjoy the family time. But please take a moment to get to know at least one of the faces on this page:

Honor the Fallen.

25 of them died in May alone, in our country's wars, in all our names.

The most recent as I post this, Army 2nd Lt. Travis A. Morgado, was from Theo's brigade.

He was from San Jose, and he looks kind of like one of my friends from when we lived out there.

That's the thing about a page like that. They always look like your friend or your cousin or the kid you used to babysit, except for the times when they are your friend or your cousin or the kid you used to babysit.
