Default Happy Memorial Day

This weekend is Memorial Day and we should all take the time from beer drinking and BBQ's to remember that we are commemorating the men and women who gave their lives in the armed forces defending our principles and freedom. We should also try to remember the large number of loved ones those service people have left behind. To those of you who've lost loved ones in the armed services, your pain and sacrifice is not forgotten.

While Veterans Day traditionally commemorates those that returned, we should still remember to thank those that served every day. If you see a vet this weekend, take a min. to shake their hand and thank them.

To all who've served or lost loved ones who've served, THANK YOU.
