Ulysses S. Grant's reputation has faded over the past century because the South’s “Lost Cause” rewriting of Civil War history downplayed his accomplishments. A new mini-series seeks to restore the West Point graduate's place in history. https://www.thedailybeast.com/leonardo-dicaprios-big-middle-finger-to-the-confederacy

Between rounds of golf, Trump was able to make time to tweet out a barrage of insults and untruths - including lies about Marine Corps veteran  @Conor Lamb.  #MemorialDay https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/on-weekend-dedicated-to-war-dead-trump-tweets-insults-promot...

On VoteVets LIVE earlier today, host  @Will Goodwin was joined by Gold Star Family members Maj. Gen.  @Major General (ret) Paul Eaton and Military Families Liaison Karen Meredith ( @Gold Star Mom) for a special  #MemorialDay remembrance. https://www.pscp.tv/votevets/1kvJpXbrDqXJE

Instead of apologizing for lying, Trump deleted his tweet from yesterday and tweeted the same lies with  @Conor Lamb's name spelled right. https://www.cnn.com/2020/05/26/politics/fact-check-trump-conor-lamb-pelosi/index.html

Trump's off-target attacks on  @Conor Lamb show how little he knows about the Marine Corps veteran, the Democratic Party and the English language. https://www.yahoo.com/huffpost/trump-conor-lamb-marine-insult-memorial-day-000300499.html

43% percent of the 1.3 million men and women on active duty in the United States military are people of color. But the top brass are almost entirely white and male. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/25/us/politics/military-minorities-leadership.html

It's important to know the difference between #MemorialDay and Veterans Day.

Today we honor all of the brave men and women who selflessly served our country, for without them there would be no freedom or democracy.  #MemorialDay #PA17

These people have been lying about my record since the day I became a candidate.

It hasn't stopped, and it won't stop, until we beat them at the ballot box in November.

This weekend, my family and I visited the Colorado Freedom Memorial to pay tribute to the over 6,000 Coloradans KIA or MIA in service to our country. Their sacrifice is debt that we can never fully repay, but we should endeavor every day to build a more perfect union to honor it

At a time when we're seeing acts of selfless service, both big and small, everywhere we look, today we pause to remember all of the heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice fighting for our nation. #MemorialDay

I wear this bracelet every day in honor of Sergeant Michael Gonzales, a soldier I served with who was killed in action in Iraq. It serves as a constant reminder of the sacrifice that he and so many of my comrades have made for our country.

Let’s take some time this #MemorialDay to remember those who gave their lives in service to our country. Because of their sacrifice, we enjoy the rights and freedoms that they fought to protect. 🇺🇸

On Memorial Day, I also look to my friends at  @VoteVets for guidance and inspiration. Trump's tweet this morning is just one of a million reasons why. Follow Vote Vets if you are not already.

Perhaps if the @POTUS hadn’t blocked us on twitter he would know we say this each year: 

There is nothing “happy” about Memorial Day.

 #MemorialDay is a time to honor those who came before me in uniform, and it's also a time to honor those who have passed by caring for the veterans who need it most during COVID-19.

On this day of remembrance, I take knee for all those who gave of their collective futures for ours. May they rest in peace and may we be worthy of their sacrifices.

Last year, a number of presidential candidates came together to each remember one of the fallen. We know they all join us today to  #HonorTheFallen.  #MemorialDay2020

We asked Dem presidential candidates to honor the true meaning of today. Here is what they sent. We thank them all, and remember all those we lost in war. Thanks to @NowThisNews for their help with this!

I interviewed a Gold Star spouse about what she learned from grief. It occurred to me that, as our nation deals with pandemic grief, there is an opportunity to heal the civil-military gap. Maybe Memorial Day doesn’t have to only be about remembering. https://www.cnn.com/2020/05/24/opinions/memorial-day-military-civilians-covid-19-kirby/index.html

Today we’re remembering our brave men and women who’ve served our country with a Memorial Day live remembrance at 12pm EDT on Twitter with  @Major General (ret) Paul Eaton and Karen Meredith. Sign up here: https://www.mobilize.us/votevets/event/275759/
