This weekend, as we all enjoy time with family and friends, let's take a few minutes to remember the sacrifices that make it possible for us to enjoy our freedoms. Bring your children to a Memorial Day parade. Visit a war memorial.
My simple thanks that day may not have been worthy but it was all I could offer. I will not forget my trips to the cemetery or their service. For their sacrifice helped you, and me, to be free.
There are numerous memorials downtown -- all with spectacular architecture and quiet significance. To help make the most of this Memorial Day, here are five of the most memorable monuments worth exploring in our nation's capital.
But for 300 million-plus Americans today, there is no realization on a daily basis of what our brothers and sisters in uniform are doing to keep us safe and secure.

Backyard barbecues with the family and parades are Memorial Day customs but how about adding 22 pushups to your tradition? That's what Dr. Dennis Rebelo has been doing for the last 22 days as part of the 22Kill project.
We don't have to wait to see whom we elect to the highest offices in the land to start to fix many problems in this country. As a former citizen-soldier, it's clear to me that a more universal sense of service would make us better citizens of a better nation.

As we approach Memorial Day this coming weekend, it's a good time to brush-up on our flag protocol. With thoughts of a fun-in-the-sun three-day weekend ahead, we sometimes forget the roots of Memorial Day.
We can never repay the debt we owe our veterans. Memorial Day, however, gives us an opportunity to think about doing more to show our gratitude.

Military veterans who've suffered an injury have more than done their part. They've made enormous sacrifices. What can we do to make sure we honor the struggles they -- and their families -- face?
Memorial Day isn't about those who came home to their families. It is about those brave souls who died in a strange land, who never got to say goodbye, never got married, never saw their children grow up.
Timing is everything for soft-shell crabs. They only come around during the summer when the blue crab casts away its hard shell.
