Memorial Day: Honor the fallen.

As everybody partakes on their Memorial day weekend adventures and celebrations with their family let's take step back from the fun a bit and think of all the ways we should Honor the fallen on this day.


  1. Pay your respects: visit a National Cementary.


National cementaries all over host Memorial Day Ceremonies on May 27th. Some cementaries allow you to volunteer to place flowers or wreaths around the grounds. For a list of National cementaries in your state check out the link below. Keep in mind not all states will have a cementary.

Enjoy your weekend & honor the ones who gave the ultimate sacrifice for your freedom!
