This weekend looks to be a beautiful one and I will enjoy it but I will also take time to remember and respect those for Memorial Day was meant. Our fallen brothers and sisters and the people they left behind.

Elected officials who rush to war should be made to first speak with the widows and grieving parents and family of those from the previous conflicts. Just to make sure that a given conflict is truly worth the price.

2nd Lt. James Cathey's body arrived at the Reno Airport in 2005.
