 Each year, on the last Monday in May, our nation celebrates Memorial  Day. For many, this day carries no special meaning except perhaps an extra day off from work, a barbecue, the start of the summer travel season, or for stores, the opportunity to hold their annual Memorial Day Weekend sale. In reality, the holiday is observed in honor of our nation's armed service personnel who were killed in wartime. With the members of my family Who currently serve in the Military and have served in the past, I feel it is important to honor those lost in war.

I am linking up with Tammy at TIME FLIES today, go read her story.
