Things To Do Memorial Day Weekend

Each year, we celebrate Memorial Day with barbecues, baseball and plenty of booze. This long weekend kickstarts the beginning of summer fun, but don’t forget, it is also a time to remember men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. So in between all that rest and recreation, be sure to check out the local memorial services in your area and take a moment to remember America’s fallen heroes of the armed service.
