Memorial Day is a holiday which typically marks the beginning of summer vacation…bbq, floatrips, picnics, and many more fun and relaxing outdoor activities. It’s a federal holiday, most people are off work for a three-day weekend…yea!
But, we should not forget the reason we have a day off work and are out having fun. Memorial Day is a day of remembering those courageous 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.
