Memorial Day is a day of remembering the courageous men and woman that died protecting our country. There are Memorial Day parades, services, memorials and cookouts to celebrate their dedication and our appreciation of their service.
I remember marching in the Memorial Day parade with my Girl Scout troop every year. I guess that helped remind me what Memorial Day was all about even as a young child. When my children were small, I took them to that same parade every year.
