Today is the start of a 3 day weekend for many, the unofficial start of summer, a weekend of picnics, vacations, extended days off school, and the great Indianapolis 500.
More importantly, Memorial Day is a Federal Holiday honoring the men and women of the United States Armed Forces who have given their life while serving our Country. We can all enjoy the picnic’s, vacations, our days off school and work because of the ultimate sacrifice men and women have given. These brave men and women continue to give their lives while protecting our freedoms and the things that we, American’s, value.
Throughout this Holiday weekend, let us keep all the Men and Women in the Armed Services in our thoughts and prayers and thank them for their service.
