Have a Safe and Happy Memorial Day 2015

Flag CeremonyMemorial Day isn’t just about shoe sales, beer and brats.  Formerly known as Decoration Day until its official name change in 1967, Memorial Day is a day to honor and remember those who have died while in service to the nation.  Read more about the history of the holiday here.

Although Memorial Day, for many, does mean a three day weekend, time spent with family and friends, a fishing trip or a cookout, big sales and big parties, take some time out from the festivities to remember why you get that long weekend and why you get to enjoy the freedoms that we have.

While it sometimes sounds trite, freedom is truly not free.  The freedoms that we enjoy in this county were bought and paid for with the blood of the men and women that we honor this weekend.

Stay safe, GunLink-ers.
