This weekend is Memorial Day Weekend. The weekend that traditionally kicks off summer. But Memorial Day has more meaning than just the start of summer. Memorial Day is the day we honor the heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country. The liberties and freedoms that we all to often take for granted are protected and defended by the selfless acts of these heroes.
So, instead of thinking about the weekend, the cookouts, and the pool parties, please take just a moment to reflect on the fallen men and women of our armed forces and their families.
