Sarah Palin recently noted that there’s “something different” about CNN’s Jake Tapper. Tapper, author of “The Outpost,” continued to distinguish himself from the media mainstream by kicking off the holiday weekend early with the #MemorialMessage hashtag. Tapper retweeted dozens of remembrances Friday evening and invited followers to carry on throughout the weekend, but not before sharing the names of some of his heroes.

There are far too many tweets to compile here, but it’s well worth following (and contributing to) #MemorialMessage this weekend.
