For many people, Memorial Day is the start of the summer. A day to enjoy cookouts, the pool, the beach and time with family and friends.
But it’s important not to forget the true meaning of this day. While you’re enjoying all of the freedoms we have, take a moment to remember those who fight so you can live this way. It’s important to thank our service men and women for their work and honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
President Obama made a surprise visit to Afghanistan Sunday to personally thank the troops stationed there.
The president is promising to bring America’s longest war to a close and bring our troops home.
He’s also promising to help them return to civilian life and calling on businesses to hire more veterans.
On this Memorial Day, what is your message for our troops?
How do you plan to honor those who serve our country and those who made the ultimate sacrifice?
