Memorial Day – Honoring those who made the ultimate sacrifice

May 26, 2022

Memorial Day weekend is coming right up. Some call the holiday weekend the “unofficial start of summer” and celebrate with BBQs, camping or trips to the beach. Stores often use Memorial Day as an excuse to stir up business with sales and promotions. 

But it’s important to remember why Memorial Day is a national holiday. 

It’s a day to pause. A day to reflect. A day to remember and honor the service men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

This holiday weekend, don’t forget to remember — freedom isn’t free, especially for those among us who’ve lost a loved one in that effort.

Memorial Day honors those who DIED in service to our Nation.

There is no “Happy Memorial Day”
