Monday is memorial day when we pay tribute to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for this country. It is also a day we need to thank and recognize those who serve and have served and pay tribute to them while they are here with us.

Fly your flag, love your country, take advantage and hold dear what these heroes gave their lives for.
