As I wrote in last year's Martin Luther King, Jr.’s holiday message, and worth repeating, is we will mark his birthday by commemorating his life and belief in justice, universal equality and a color-blind society. Dr. King, through faith, perseverance, and reason, changed the course of our Nation forever. He lived by the measure "What are you doing for others?" -- an ideal that resonates with our Army values and Warrior Ethos.

Since 1994, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day (MLK Day) has been set aside as a national day of service (http://mlkday.gov). It also is part of United We Serve, President Obama’s national call to Americans from all walks of life to work together to provide solutions to our most pressing national problems.
