Honor Our Fallen Heroes

Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day set aside to remember and honor the military men and women who have died in service to our country. Many of us see the day as the herald of summer. Families take camping trips, have backyard parties, and generally enjoy the day.

But let us not forget we enjoy the freedoms we do because these men and women have not only fought to procure our freedoms, but also to ensure we keep them. Place a flag on the graves of the veterans you knew. And all throughout the year, say a heartfelt thank you to the veterans and active military personnel you see in the course of your day. Believe me when I say hearing "Thank you for your service" can bring tears to a veteran's eyes.

Happy Memorial Day
