FAIRFAX, Va. –-(Ammoland.com)- “Memorial day was instituted in 1868 to honor America's war dead.
Those who voluntarily gave up the comforts of home to do their nation's bidding and forfeited their lives in desperate, miserable places.
They didn't choose to die, but they chose to serve – the dying just came with the territory.
We call this ‘the price of freedom.'
It's a paradox – hard for many to grasp, but important to think about.
For you to live your life as a free citizen of America, others gave theirs.” – NRA Life of Duty Correspondent Chuck Holton
