On the last Monday of each May, we celebrate Memorial Day. We take this day to honor those who have served in our armed forces and given their lives in the defense of this country. I personally salute and give a heartfelt “Thank You” to those who have given their all, so that I may live with the freedoms I enjoy today. This holiday has been observed since the end of the Civil War when it was called Decorations Day. God Bless those who have taken up the cause of freedom for this great nation and their families who have offered a great sacrifice for our home, the United States of America!
