For more than a decade, this nation has fought in Afghanistan and Iraq and more than 6,700 men and women have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. That’s what Memorial Day is all about. It is also a time to remember and honor our troops for their service every day and for their willingness to put themselves in harm’s way in order to keep us safe. Among these brave men and women is Melissa Stockwell of Oak Park, Illinois, who is the first female soldier amputee of the Iraq War.
