As we reflect this weekend on the meaning of Memorial Day, I am thankful for all the “sheepdogs” that have been willing to confront evil on behalf of our nation, even dying in the pursuit of it if necessary.

Have you ever heard of the Arlington Ladies?  The first group originally founded in 1948, these women attend every funeral at Arlington National Cemetery to ensure that no service member is buried alone.
