Memorial Day 2017

Besides being the unofficial start to summer, Memorial Day is a time to remember the men and women who died while serving our country in the U.S. military. It became an official holiday in 1971 even though it originated as Decoration Day after the Civil War.

I recently learned that every year at 3:00 in the afternoon is a national moment of remembrance.

Whether you visit a cemetery, go to a parade, park, or the beach, I hope you have a blessed Memorial Day.
