Memorial Day is a holiday which typically marks the beginning of summer vacation…bbq, beer, float trips, and countless other fun and relaxing outdoor activities. It’s a federal holiday, most people are off work, it’s a three-day weekend…let the games begin!
However, we should not forget why we have a day off work and are out having fun. Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. Many people visit cemeteries and memorials, to honor those who made the greatest sacrifice while serving our country. To those men and women, we salute you.
