I just finished reading Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand and it is definitely one of the best books I've ever read.  It is very well-written and tells the incredible story of Louie Zamperini and all he went through during WWII- he joined the air force, was shipwrecked on a raft for 47 days, then held in a Japanese POW camp for the rest of the war.  It is amazing and humbling to think of what so many have done for our country.  At times I was cringing and almost in tears as I read about the terrible suffering in the POW camps.  I'm grateful we have a day set aside to remember those who have sacrificed for our country.  We are very lucky to live in this free land.
