How do you acknowledge the solemn nature of Memorial Day?

The real significance of this day is about commemorating veterans who have served in the military or men and women who are currently serving in our military. Let’s remember we owe them a huge debt of gratitude as they gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country.

We can express our sincere thanks by:

  1.  Making a charitable donation to www.fallenpatriots.org (or another similar organization of your choice)
  2.  Hiring a veteran
  3.  Volunteering your time and expertise to veterans
  4.  Attending an event that honors veterans
  5. Bringing in a veteran speaker

Today, let us all stop and remember that the freedom we sometimes tend to take for granted is anything but free.  We owe our freedom to the many soldiers who have so bravely given of themselves.  That’s the true meaning of Memorial Day.
