        As our nation prepares to enjoy
    Memorial Day, the official begin-
    ning of summer and end-of-school
    year that it symbolizes, let us take a
    moment to consider those for
    whom this holiday was created.
        In particular I would like to re-
    flect upon the generation of my par-
    ents that have come to be called the
    “Greatest Generation,” that group
    of Americans whose lives will for-
    ever serve as a yardstick to measure
    the accomplishments of all that fol-
        For the younger ones among
    you, these are your grandparents or
    great grandparents who fought dur-
    ing the Second World War or
    worked in the factories to support
    the war. For me, it is Dad and Mom,
    William (Bill) and Opal Rogers.
    Their generation spent its childhood
    during the Great Depression, in
    times that were so tough they defy
    modern comprehension. Then the
    call came as young adults for them                                                                                              Sarah Huber, daughter of Mike and Kari Huber of
