      While Memorial Day weekend was a wonderful time for gathering with family and friends for picnics, pool parties, and parades, I hope the true meaning of the event was not forgotten. 

    Memorial Day is an annual reminder of the brave men and women who have put everything on the line so we may live in freedom in the greatest nation in the world. 

    Born out of a wish to honor those who fell in the Civil War, Memorial Day serves as a nationally-recognized holiday to honor all those who have died in service of the United States.
