To all those who have not lost friends or loved ones, remember Memorial day is not a festive day to celebrate or exploit big business shopping sales but a day to remember those who fought and died like men.

Re: Memorial Day 2014

Sergeant James J. Regan, 26, of Manhasset, New York, died February 9, 2007, in northern Iraq of wounds suffered when an improvised explosive device detonated near his vehicle while on combat patrol.Regan was assigned to the 3rd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, Fort Benning, Georgia.

James was a lacrosse player at Duke before joining the Army. He turned down a lucrative corporate job and law school to enlist. If you happen to see the NCAA Lacrosse championships on television today, the Duke players wear "JR 10" on their helmets in his honor.
