Memorial Day

Memorial Day is a day to reflect on the service, sacrifice and honor of the men and women who paid the ultimate price for our freedoms. So while you enjoy the rest of your three day weekend with friends, family, BBQ and big department store sales, please take a moment to honor our fallen heroes lest we forget the true meaning of Memorial Day.

Over the years the meaning of Memorial Day has faded too much from the public consciousness. From a solemn day of mourning, remembrance, and honor to our departed loved ones, it has degenerated into a weekend of Bar B Q's, shopping bargains and beaches where only token nods toward our honored dead is given, if at all. Too many don't know what the day stands for.
