Memorial Day

On Memorial Day, we pay tribute to the soldiers, sailors, and airmen who have fallen in defense of the United States, our country, as well as those who now are in service. At 3 pm todat, I hope that everyone will observe the National Moment of Remembrance. In particular, I will remember my cousin Army Capt. Eric T. Paliwoda (right), 4th Infantry Division, West Point Class of 1997, who was killed in combat in Iraq on January 2, 2004. We will never forget.
