Happy Memorial Day Weekend! As we are enjoying the long weekend, firing up the grill or headed to a lake or pool with the kids, remember that the reason for the day is that so many never made it home from serving our country during wartime. Thank you to all of the various local veterans groups for doing what they do – not just on Memorial Day but every day – to honor their fallen brethren and to remind us that there are those who sacrificed everything to ensure our freedom.
