Memorial Day: Not Just For Barbecue


That's about it for us. And as we close this special Memorial Day broadcast, I have a few thoughts about the holiday which you can find on the Opinion Page at But just briefly, we want to note that while many of us will spend the day at the swimming pool or a cookout, this is a day of remembrance for millions of Americans whose loved ones made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. So we want to end our Memorial Day program with a message to them. Thank you.

And that's our program for today. You've been listening to TELL ME MORE from NPR News. I'm Michel Martin. Let's talk more tomorrow. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
