Last Monday was Memorial Day. A very special day.

We are now also in a season of rememberance for those who gave their lives for our country 60 years ago, e.g. tomorrow is the 60th Anniversary of D-Day.

Donald Sensing has a great piece highlighting the Battle of Midway, and lamenting the fact that so few school children today are learning history in its purest, and most interesting, form.

I remember growing up and reading as much as I could about WWII and the Civil War. Lessons I will never forget.

Why are our children not being taught our history? Although relatively short, our nation's history is incredibly rich.

It is shameful we are not passing it on to our children.
