For many people, the last Monday in May is a day to watch the Indy 500, or go water skiing, maybe have a barbecue with friends and neighbors on another long weekend. But the true meaning of the weekend is more than just time off. It is a time to reflect on the sacrifices that the men and women of our armed forces have made for our country.
The Family Site today is called Memorial Day, and is a site composed of links that try to help a visitor learn about the true meaning of this day. There is special prayer, the President’s Memorial Day message, and areas divided into specific topics, such as POW-MIA and Memorials and Casualty lists. From here you can visit the Lost Boats Memorial for submariners, the 20th Massachusetts memorial at Gettysburg, or Arlington National Cemetery, just to name a few sites.
Remembering the past deeds of our nation’s heroes is one of the best ways to honor them. Take a few minutes today to visit this site, you will be amazed at what you will see.
