Memorial Day is almost here which means warmer weather, more outside activities and best of all, it means summer is approaching! This is a holiday in which many people get together with family and friends for cookouts, sporting events and picnics.
Don't forget what Memorial Day is really all about – remembering all the men and women who have passed while serving in the U.S. military. Many people incorporate red, white and blue decorations into their cookouts as a reminder of the reason for the day.
