After several days of packing, moving, and unpacking, it is nice to relax by the pool and enjoy some BBQ on this Memorial Day. However, there is one thing not to be missed: the real reason for the holiday.
Today isn’t about the fireworks, opening of pools, or ringing in the summer season. It’s about remembering the military members who gave the ultimate price for our country’s freedom. You can probably tell by now that I bleed red, white, and blue. Memorial Day, the 4th of July, and Veteran’s Day are a few of my favorite days of the year.
Let us not forget to remember our fallen soldiers today and everyday. Add a new tradition to your backyard BBQ this year with a few of the ideas below.
1: Raise your American flag outside your home.
2: Visit a veteran’s home and capture their story.
3: Share a picture of a beloved fallen military member on social media.
4: Write thank you notes to our troops serving throughout the world.
5: Watch or listen to the National Memorial Day Concert.
