While you are celebrating this weekend, please remember that Memorial Day is to honor our fallen heroes. It’s not about getting the day off work, drinking at the BBQ, watching movies about the day. It’s keeping those who died for our country in our hearts, acknowledging that they are true heroes.
Also, as my father once told me:
Memorial Day is for the fallen. Please don’t thank living vets on this day. If you want to thank a living vet, thank them on Veterans Day.
