Nightline to Honor The Fallen on Memorial Day.

The show will honor more than 900 service men and women who have died in the past year while serving in Iraq in Afghanistan.

Last year, Nightline did this as well, but Sinclair broadcasting refused to air it on the ABC stations it owns claiming it was a political anti-war statement "disguised as news content." This year, Sinclair has chosen to air the broadcast. While they say it's because the broadcast is on Memorial Day, there's another more fundamental difference between this year and a year ago.

Did everyone guess what that difference is? That's right, last year was a presidential election year. Have a cookie.
