Memorial Day is a day to pause and remember the men and women of our armed services who have given their lives in service to our nation. It's a time to pay tribute to those who've made the ultimate sacrifice in order to protect our freedom and liberty. If you've lost a loved one who died while in military service, please accept the humble gratitude of the entire nation.
Below are just a few of the interviews we've conducted with men and women who have bravely served in our armed forces. Many of them lost their brothers and sisters in arms, and we hope the stories they share will keep those voices alive forever.
Profile in Courage Sgt. 1st Class Joe Kapacziewski is the first and only amputee in Army Rangers’ history to return to combat, and he did it a stunning five times. He explains why he realized amputating his injured leg was the only way to maintain his active lifestyle and get back on the battlefield with his fellow Rangers to honor those who'd lost their lives.
