PHILADELPHIA: As Memorial Day has evolved since the Civil War, our nation celebrates it to remember and honor those who died while serving in the Armed Forces. At the national level, the service itself is more important than the cause. It doesn’t matter if the sacrifice was made during World Wars I and II, in Korea and Vietnam, or in Iraq and Afghanistan. Whenever and wherever those deaths occurred, they offer a unifying theme of the spirit: Honor those whose service cost their lives.
