I hope you are having a wonderful and safe Memorial Day Week-end. I am sure you are enjoying cook outs and fun at the lake or beach or perhaps just relaxing at home with family and friends.
I would like to take just a few minutes to say we must never forget.
Let us never forget those who died to make us free!
