Alan Ruddell, Jerry Petty, John Hanson. You don't know them, but you owe them. They were fellow members of my high school football team and welded with me at the local steel plant. Like me, they were drafted into the army, but they lost their lives in service of our national community. They're the names I must speak at the beginning of my Memorial Day. And I owe a debt to the names of the people among your family and friends that you will speak today. Don't let their names die; tell your kids or your friends about these people who missed out on so much of their lives because of something we all once took for granted -- a country, with clearly defined members and borders.
