Memorial Day

Every Memorial Day, I take a moment to think about all the men and women who died while serving our country.   Memorial Day is the start of the carefree days of summer, but I think it's important to remember that all those carefree moments are made possible by the brave people who gave their lives for our country.

Memorial Day felt like a summer day.  The weather was gorgeous, spirits were high, and the promise of long, hot, lazy summer days lingered in the air.

There were plenty of carefree moments.
