Memorial Day is just a couple of weeks away. It's a day a lot of us have off, we celebrate with family and friends as we welcome Summer, and most important we celebrate, honor, and remember those who served and lost their lives.

I remember being in my Memorial Day Parades in my hometown when I was in the school band. Walking through the town with red, white, and blue - and the the beautiful music, there was nothing better than remembering and saying, "Thank You"- to our Veterans and honoring those we lost.
