Memorial Day weekend is a time for BBQ and family, and the first time most pools open for the summer. People remind us this time of year that Memorial Day is not a day for BBQ, but to honor the fallen soldiers. As a military veteran, I can vouch that the military is pretty big about honoring all holidays with a community event and a 3 day weekend. Just make sure you don't forget the soldiers in your prayers and events.
Here is a round up of material to help you plan your Memorial Day Weekend with your loved ones. As usual, I aimed for quick and easy ideas.
Please enjoy this weekend. Our soldiers didn't die for you to grieve. They died for you to embrace your freedom and liberties.
