For those of you who took notice, I've taken a vacation this week from the news roundup and that included this weeks edition of the news roundup. Sean and I will be back next weekend to deliver the podcast. I hope everyone had a safe and celebratory weekend. Reflecting on what we, as Americans, have gained and lost due to the sacrifice of our service men and women is something that we should always be mindful of. For all of you that have served or continue to serve in our military; Thank you.
