Monday was Memorial Day, but one single day should not be the only instance when we remember and honor those who served and are serving our country. We tend to focus on our nation’s military branches – Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force and Coast Guard. I want to take some time to acknowledge two other groups who also serve and have earned our respect and admiration.
Recently, “Guard Day at the Capitol” was held as the mission and capabilities of the Pennsylvania National Guard were showcased through numerous displays and speakers. May 23, 2018, was also declared “National Guard Day in Pennsylvania,” and Maj. Gen. Anthony Carrelli, Pennsylvania’s adjutant general, spoke on the House floor.
