Memorial Day Weekend is here! It's a day a lot of us have off and gather with family and friends to welcome Summer. Most importantly we celebrate, honor, and remember those who served and lost their lives.

I remember every Memorial Day parade growing up. We would wear our red, white, and blue and wave those flags so high. There is nothing better than saying "thank you" to our veterans and remembering those we've lost.
