Today is the official celebration of Memorial Day, although the traditional date is actually May 31. Memorial Day is a time off work, the Indy 500, and cook-outs. But, its also a day of remembering those who paid the ultimate price for our freedom.

I lost three friends in Vietnam. One was shot multiple times by a buddy who was high, the second was an MP who was stabbed in the back trying to break up a bar fight, and the third was a K-9 handler who was a target because he was the only one to control the dog.

Each of these friends laid his life down for the cause of extending freedom. The ugliness of that war did not minimize the extent of their sacrifice. I will remember them today.

Who do you remember who paid the ultimate price for your freedom? Tell us about him/her.
