Memorial Day is a holiday most Americans get to enjoy. We get a day off from work to spend time with friends and family, maybe have some BBQ, enjoy some local sales and just relax. Memorial Day isn't about any of these things. The U.S. Marines have posted an incredible video via their official YouTube channel to remind us what the day is truly about.

Hopefully, you're taking some time today to remember those who have served, those who are currently serving our country, and especially those who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our way of life. I am also. I'm particularly remembering someone today who served in the US Army, not during wartime, but right after World War II. I'm referring to my Father, Harold Wiley.

To many, Memorial Day is a chance to take a three day weekend, fire up the grill & take it easy. The last Monday in May was made a holiday to honor those who have sacrificed for our country. When you enjoy your long weekend, please keep that in mind. Spending time with folks we love is a celebration of what they fought to protect, and the best way I can think of to honor their memory.
