Happy Memorial Day Weekend, Part 2...."Lest We Forget" and "The Luckiest Soldier Alive".



Today on CBS Sunday Morning there were two remarkable stories that tie in nicely to the true spirit of Memorial Day. Yes, its about hot dogs, the shore, baseball, and Indy....but its deeper meaning is to remember those who have sacrificed much.

The first video is about Iraq War vet Brendan Marrocco, badly wounded and rehabbing at Walter Reade. Take a look at it, and you'll see a courageous young guy who regards himself The Luckiest Soldier Alive.

The second is about Wayne Van Doren and the tradition of his family....traversing the state of Ohio and planting more than 1200 flags on the graves of military veterans, from the American Revolution to Iraq and Afghanistan. Three generations of Van Dorens are involved. The segment is titled Lest We Forget.
