Memorial Day weekend is here. It is the unofficial beginning of summer. There are tons of sales going on as well as cookouts and family gatherings while we enjoy an extra day off of work.
There is another part of Memorial Day which is much more sobering. It is this day we remember those who gave their lives in the fight for our freedom. Their sacrifices and their families’ sacrifices, allow us to enjoy this holiday weekend. It is important to honor these brave men and women who have secured and continue to secure our political freedom. Our gratitude is huge to this amazing group of people.
