This is Ralph H. Johnson. Ralph jumped on a grenade, blowing himself in half, to save my daddy's life and the lives of two other Marines with him on a hilltop in Vietnam. My daddy recommended Ralph for the Congressional Medal of Honor, which he was awarded posthumously. Daddy was also influential in having the VA hospital in Charleston, SC named for Ralph. A destroyer, the USS Ralph Johnson, will launch later this year.

Today is Memorial Day. Please remember it is not about the sales, surfing, swimming, and kick-off to summer. Today is about honoring sacrifice. The ultimate.

“Your heart was warm and happy

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
