To many Memorial Day is just an extra day off from work
to Bar-B-Que and celebrate the beginning of summer...
To many others it is a meaningful holiday commemorating those who
have fallen in military service for their countries.
My husband is an Iraq War Veteran, and while we fire up the pit and celebrate as countless other Americans do on Memorial Day, there is always a moment of reflection and the remembrance of what this day truly means.
Today, we honor the lives and memories of those who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our nation.
