I hope everyone is enjoying the unofficial kickoff to summer! Mother Nature gave us some gorgeous weather this weekend! In the midst of the cook-outs, festivals, and other Memorial Day fun, it’s important to remember the true meaning of the day.
“A man’s country is not a certain area of land, of mountains, rivers, and woods, but it is a principle and patriotism is loyalty to that principle.” – George William Curtis
With gratitude to all those who have served, particularly those who paid the ultimate price for our freedom.
