As we enter this Memorial Day weekend here in the U.S.A., remember those who fought and died to allow us the privilege to enjoy the activities we do and share in the blessings bestowed upon us as a free nation.
Freedom came at a high cost. Don't let it slip away by becoming complacent. This year I would like to thank our Indigenous heroes for their sacrifices in service to the land. They have played a significant role in making us who we are inspite of some of the cards they were dealt over the years. I honor them.
Fly Old Glory at half staff from dawn until midday to honor the fallen and then full staff from then until sunset to honor past and present veterans and active duty members. This is the only time this etiquette is employed in this manner.
