Jessica Alba Honors Our Troops in a Bikini (PHOTOS)

Sure, Memorial Day weekend might be a three-day bacchanal of barbecues and merry-making, but let’s not forget what the holiday is really about: Honoring the brave servicemen and women who preserve our cherished freedoms. Such as the freedom to ogle a bikini-clad Jessica Alba.

The Fantastic Four actress celebrated the holiday appropriately on Sunday by lounging poolside at a resort in Orange County, clad only in a skimpy two-piece. Excuse us while we put our hands over our hearts—not because we’re about to recite the Pledge of Allegiance, merely to prevent our tickers from jumping right out of our chests.
