Memorial Day

This coming Monday, May 31st is Memorial Day. The day we remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for freedom.

In addition to going to the beach and barbecuing the hot dogs, take a moment to understand the true solemn meaning of the day.

Freedom is never free, and thousands of American soldiers over the years have given their lives to bring freedom and defend freedom here in the United States and around the world.

In honor of Memorial Day do something to honor those who have fallen. Find a local military cemetery and volunteer to help keep it weed-free. Place flowers on graves left unremembered. Find out what you can do to help veterans today.

Rather than let this day go unnoticed and pass by as just another 3 day weekend, please do your part to remember those who have given you the most precious gift of all, freedom.
