On this day where we remember those who paid the ultimate price, fighting for the freedoms and rights that make America that greatest nation on the face of the earth, Happy Memorial Day from everyone at the Tipsheet.

As we enjoy cookouts, family and friends, remember that since the onset of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, a total of 6,437 troops have been killed in action and 48,176 wounded.

That includes 203 Georgians killed in action and 1,328 wounded.

This Memorial Day, take pause and remember them.
