Memorial Day means many things to Americans. It is the kick off of summer, pools usually open, kids begin to dream about their summer vacations and it is a three day weekend.
So while it is seen as a fun weekend (I did a lot of yard work) this weekend, it is also a day of celebrating and being grateful for our way of life, our personal freedoms and remembering the men and women who died while serving their country to protect those of us at home.
My father is retired U.S. Air Force so in my family, Memorial Day was a special holiday.
God Bless America!
