Happy Memorial Day! This is a photo from my hometown’s Memorial Day parade. I played in the marching band throughout high school, and I still enjoy going back every year to watch the parade and ceremony. It is a nice tradition to take a break from the barbecues and visiting with friends to remember what the day is about. Thank you to our service men and women for protecting us. My prayers go out to those injured in the line of duty, and to the families of those who have fallen. Thank you for protecting our freedom.
