On this Memorial Day, please take a moment to pause and remember the fallen heroes, and those who served, like my late brother Antonio J Soto III.
Also, please say thank you to all current members of our military, as well as US Veterans. Thank them for their great service. We don't know them all. but we owe them all.
If it were not for Memorial Day, we would not have this great nation. It is still the best country on earth, where people of all races, cultures and religions have frown the melting pot into a rich, mixed and unique salad.
