Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial start of the summer season. Memorial Day also has another special meaning that sometimes gets taken for granted.

Memorial Day is a time to remember the men and women who died while serving in our United States Armed Forces. Take time to enjoy the sweeter things in life today, and to remember those who made the sacrifices for us to enjoy them.
