The Best Way to Honor Fallen Soldiers Is to Stop Sending Troops to War

While honoring the troops on Memorial Day is a heartfelt and respectful endeavor, we must do so by protecting those who have not yet sacrificed their lives. Every Memorial Day, Americans pay their respects to soldiers who have died while fighting for the US military.

While controversial in foreign policy establishment circles,...
