Memorial Day is the day that America celebrates in honor of our soldiers who have given the ultimate sacrifice, our troops who have lost their family and friends and our freedoms that have come of those sacrifices; our capacity to help others in need; and our thankfulness for the people who fight for us. Happy Memorial Day weekend. Salute!
