MESA, AZ -- For some, Memorial Day will be a day of family picnics, barbecues and parades. But for Congressman Ruben Gallego, a freshman Democrat from Arizona who served as a Marine in Iraq, Memorial Day will be a time of remembrance.
When Manuel Contreras, 21, first visited Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island as a high school student, everything about the prestigious school "felt right." It was his dream school, the place where he felt he belonged. But all that changed first semester of freshman year.
