We salute all who have served our country, but Memorial Day is reserved for a special group of men and women.

Did you that only 55% of Americans know the real meaning of Memorial Day? That means a large number of Americans don't truly know why we celebrate the holiday.

So, for those of you that aren't aware, we celebrate Memorial Day to honor those that have made the ULTIMATE SACRIFICE! 

Veterans Day, which we celebrate in November, is reserved to honor all that have or are serving the U.S.

Many get the two holidays confused, and I understand, but let's not forget to think about those that gave their life for our country on Memorial Day weekend.

Thanks for making the ultimate sacrifice. We are all better because of your sacrifice.
