Remembering on Memorial Day

Today we celebrate Memorial Day--a day started after the Civil War and then made into Federal Law in the 1960's to remember those soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines who gave their lives in defense of our country. Too often, it simply turns into a 3-day weekend where we sit around and have a cook-out instead of a time of remembrance.

Make sure you take time this week-end to remember those who have given their lives in service to their country.

Attached is a video of servicemen coming home and surprising their families to help us recall the sacrifices that they make. I couldn't help to picture these images happening over the centuries, whether or not it was today, after World War II or the even the Civil War. These men, while are survivors, have given their lives to the country.
