With Memorial Day now over, it’s important to remember why this is a holiday in the first place.
Memorial Day is more than just a “long weekend” as Kamala Harris and Joe Biden call it.
In this episode of Making the Argument, former Green Beret combat veteran Nick Freitas shares the stories of those who Memorial Day is for.
Memorial Day is about more than just grilling with family or friends or enjoying a day off from work.
So, when Joe Biden and Kamala Harris took to Twitter last week to post photos of themselves, while calling the holiday honoring America’s fallen heroes little more than a “long weekend”, it caused a firestorm in Washington, D.C.
But few could be as outraged as the callous nature in which the President and Vice-President glossed over the sacrifice of thousands of American servicemembers than those who had served.
In this episode of Making the Argument, former Green Beret combat veteran Nick Freitas gets to the heart of the question of what Memorial Day is truly about, and how politicians like Biden and Harris routinely overlook the stories of those who never came home.
