Memorial Day: We honor those who sacrificed themselves in the defense of liberty

The 42nd Highlanders Pipe and Drum Corps open a tribute to America's fallen defenders from Forest Lawn Cemetery in Hollywood Hills, California. Army Capt. Justin Babcock gives an inspiring tribute to the defenders of freedom.
