This is the holiday that marks the beginning of grilling season for most people. This is the grand picnic that starts out the picnics for the summer.
But this is more than just an excuse to get together and eat grilled hamburgers.
This is a holiday to remember the freedoms we have and at what price they have been bought. It is a chance for us to honor those who have given themselves for that cause and to bless those around us who were prepared to give themselves.
Thank a veteran today.
