THIS MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND…

Memorial Day is one of those national holidays that offer a three day weekend and the time to kick back doing whatever you, your family, your friends chooses to do.

But the reason for the last Monday in May being a holiday is often lost in the rush to make those plans.

It is hardly a day of rest or relaxation for those in uniform deployed in places where they will dodge RPG’s, avoid IED’d and shoulder their own weapons while trying to win the hearts and minds of whatever place they’ve been sent.

They do, however, know what Memorial Day is all about.

The men and women of America’s Armed Forces understand what sacrifice means. They have seen it. They know exactly why Memorial Day exists.

Memorial Day offers us the opportunity to remember those who fought and died in America’s wars – past and present.

So as you pop the top on your favorite brand of beer, and grill those T-bone steaks or Ballpark hot dogs, consider taking time on your day off to reflect on those who served and didn’t have the opportunity to join the rest of us this Memorial Day – 2014.

God Bless America
