Honoring Our Veterans
This weekend, President Obama took time to honor those who fought in the Korean War -- 60 years to the day after the war concluded. "Perhaps the highest tribute we can offer our veterans of Korea is to do what should have been done the day you came home,” the President said at the Korean War Veterans Memorial, "In our hurried lives, let us pause. Let us listen. Let these veterans carry us back to the days of their youth, and let us be awed by their shining deeds."
