Vice President Kamala Harris is being criticized for a tweet telling people to enjoy their weekend without mentioning Memorial Day.
“Enjoy the long weekend,” Harris tweeted Saturday, along with a picture of herself.
Memorial Day, which is observed on the last Monday in May, is a holiday that commemorates all those who enlisted and lost their lives to defend the country, and some people were quick to remind Harris of that.
“And pay tribute to the courageous men and women of our nation’s military who sacrificed their lives in defense of our freedoms and liberties,” Republican Rep. Lee Zeldin tweeted in response.

But many more people enlist for love of country, sense of duty and a willingness to serve their fellow citizens. Many of these people in the second category do so because they've been shown time and again that their fellow citizens appreciate their service, their sacrifice (not just the ulitmate sacrifice of their lives, but the hardships and travails they go through in protecting their fellow citizens from "all enemies, foreign and domestic" is recognized and appreciated by their countrymen.
As the saying goes, these volunteers have "Written a blank check made payable to “The United States of America,” for an amount up to and including their life." and it is fitting and proper that we honor them for their service that can lead them to give "their last full measure of devotion".
