Since the death of her older brother, Marine Cpl. John T. Olson of Elk Grove Village, in Iraq 10 years ago, teaching her generation about the true meaning of Memorial Day has become a personal mission for Courtney Olson. "In reality," she said, "it is a solemn holiday, remembering those that fought for our country and made the ultimate sacrifice."
