Now Memorial Day Weekend is a great time to get friends and family together to kickoff the summer, but let's not forget the meaning behind Memorial day. The purpose of Memorial Day is to remember those who died in active military service. It is a great time to honor those who serve or have served our country. Stop by a local parade to give veterans and active soldiers the standing ovation they deserve. It is also a tradition by some to fly the U.S. flag at half-staff until noon. Be sure to celebrate with reflection, patriotism and loved ones, enjoy!
