    (CNN)Six years ago on Memorial Day, I anchored a show on CNN, filling in for a colleague who had the day off.Our lead story was about fake bomb threats against commercial airplanes -- including an international flight heading for New York's JFK Airport. Military fighter jets intercepted and escorted the plane safely to the ground, and passengers were held for two hours as FBI agents searched the plane. "So inconvenient on a day like today," I said to the reporter, lamenting the headache for travelers on the long weekend.We closed the show with a moment from the Memorial Day commemoration at Arlington National Cemetery -- after the bugle call of "Taps" and remarks from President Barack Obama, Gen. Martin Dempsey, then the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who asked Americans to honor the families of service members killed in wars and consider them on days other than Memorial Day. CNN's Brianna Keilar explores the military-civilian divide and the challenges facing service members and their families in a nation that has been at war since just after...
    I come from a long line of service-oriented people. So, it came as no surprise to me when my son, Jesse, shared that he was joining the military.  Our family has a rich history of distinguished military service and Jesse was so excited to continue our family’s story by adding his chapter. His decision to serve was influenced by his grandfather, a WWII veteran who served during Pearl Harbor, and his father, a Vietnam veteran.  Jesse Melton III is commissioned as an officer in the U.S. Marine Corps. It was a different world when Jesse joined the U.S. Marine Corps in 1997. I remember there was an ease to that time of life. I could walk right up to the airplane departure gate and kiss my son goodbye. And it seemed like the biggest challenge that year was trying to buy early tickets for the movie, "Titanic." But just a few short years later in 2001, everything changed. DANIEL HOFFMAN: THANKFUL FOR KIM – BEFORE SHE DIED, MY WIFE LOVINGLY PREPARED ME AND OUR SONS TO CARRY ON...

    President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden drew on their own family experience to celebrate America's armed forces and their loved ones during a Memorial Day weekend kickoff event on Friday. "The families of our service members and veterans, the caregivers who lift up our wounded and our ill and our injured, the survivors who grieve those we've lost — you may not wear a uniform, but military families are as critical to our national defense as a rudder is to a ship," the first lady said when opening her remarks at Joint Base Langley-Eustis in Virginia.

His father on Friday said his son's unit was based "downwind" from a "burn pit," which some troops advocates have said caused such terminal and serious injuries in personnel who served there and in Afghanistan because toxic...

The “Devil Went Down to Georgia” crooner died on Monday after a stroke at the age of 83.
