This weekend is Memorial Day weekend.  Yes, it really is traditionally the unofficial start of the Summer camping, cookouts, and family/friends fun season.

What many of us tend to forget is that it is a day to remember our military.  And not just military... it is a day to honor American military who have died while serving.  It's not just to honor ALL military, as many people think that it is.

So, as you are celebrating this weekend, and taking some probably much needed family time away from work and school... remember the meaning of the holiday.


Have a great weekend.
