Memorial Day, first observed in 1868 to honor the sacrifices of those who served in the Civil War, is now the day when we Americans pause to remember all the men and women who gave their lives while serving in the U.S. armed forces. Along with the men and women of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), I will take time this Memorial Day to honor the ultimate sacrifice made by American service members.
