Looking for the perfect way to commemorate our fallen men and women? Many spend the day at the beach or barbecuing at home with friends and family, but many forget why we get this day off of work in the first place. Since 1861, we have celebrated Memorial Day to remember those whose lives have been lost while serving in the United States Armed Forces. You can still enjoy your fresh hotdogs straight from the grill, but consider attending a Memorial Day event in the morning to show your support for past and current troops fighting for our country.
