Memorial Day

Memorial Day weekend is usually a chance for an extended weekend, having an additional day off, going camping, fishing, hiking, grilling, going to the massive amounts of sales, and other fun activities. Let’s not forget what Memorial Day really means.

As Americans, we have freedoms. A lot of freedoms. Freedom of speech, the right to bear arms, being able to vote, not having to worry about an oppressive and violent leader, and the ability to protest things we think need to be changed. We have our Armed Forces to thank for our many freedoms. Please keep our servicemen, past and present, in mind. Take a minute to thank them whether it’s a family member, a friend, a colleague, or a memorial of a fallen servicemember. These brave men and women are out there protecting us and those who don’t have a voice. Many have given the ultimate sacrifice for you and I.

Now, it is nice to have an extended weekend and do fun things with families. Here are some safety tips for this weekend:

Have an excellent Memorial Day weekend and stay safe, wherever you are!
