While it is the unofficial start of summer, Memorial Day is more than a neighborhood barbecue and a three day weekend. On Monday, May 29, people will visit loved ones at cemeteries, volunteers will decorate parade floats, and children will march in parades. The truth is that many Americans have little connection to the holiday or understanding of how it began. This is a day to not only honor and remember those who have died while serving in our military, but also a day to remember all loved ones who have passed away.
Before you drive over to your town’s historic monument or your cousin’s cook-out, we ask that you reflect on the lives lost protecting our country. All of us at Gene Wagner Plumbing are proud to offer our gratitude to those who have given their lives for our glorious country.
