VIDEO: Markell honors Delaware's military

With Memorial Day weekend arriving, Governor Markell pays tribute to the men and women in the armed forces as part of his latest weekly message.

"Memorial Day reminds us of the sacrifices they make--sometimes the ultimate sacrifice--in service to others," Markell said.

"It is thanks to their triumphs and their tragedies that we enjoy the freedoms we have. We have an obligation to keep alive the memories of those we have lost and remember the gratitude we owe to the service members who follow in their footsteps."
