Memorial Day is around the corner. With the long weekend ahead, many of us will be hitting the road for our next family vacation. While you’re taking advantage of the downtime to get in quality time with friends and family, don’t forget the history behind Memorial Day.
Memorial Day is an opportunity to remember and appreciate men and women that have put their lives on the line for America’s freedom. It is also a time to remember friends and family that have passed. Here are some ways to honor the meaning of Memorial Day.
Thank a military member
Military and their families make huge sacrifices. From the military personnel themselves facing daily risks to the spouses bringing up youngsters alone while their other half does their duty across the globe, military life is not easy for families. Take a moment to offer gratitude to a military family.
Support a Memorial Day event
Across the country, there will be parades, carnivals, and social events to observe Memorial Day. Don’t simply look for the extravagant floats and snack booths. See how you can actually support a memorial cause by donating time or money.
It doesn’t matter how you say thanks, just that you do it one way or another. From the proud team at Insulation Industries Warehouse, thank you, America.
