Today is observed as Memorial Day in the United States, a day for remembering the men and women of our armed services who died while at war. Collected here are a handful of photographs for remembrance, acknowledging some of the men and women who have passed in conflicts from the U.S. Civil War through Iraq and Afghanistan today. On a personal note, I want to thank all the men and women who are currently serving or have served our country. The amount of time and energy you have spent to protect and serve this country will never be forgotten nor ignored. We honor you on this very special day because of all the sacrifices you have made to make this country better for people like myself, my family, and friends, and for that you deserve our highest praise. Thanks again and keep rockin' out! via the big picture – boston globe
