Extra Points – Memorial Day Special

This week’s focus point…Memorial Day Special

Reprinted from Memorial Day 2012 and 2013. Looks like a tradition in the making…            

When I was a kid, Memorial Day was a day off from school. It was a great holiday because it marked the beginning of summer, the nearing of the end of another school year, and baseball.

My dad was a World War II veteran, a 30-year Navy man, and we lived in a Navy town. However, Memorial Day was just another holiday.

Today, that’s all changed. Yes, I still do like the perks – my wife gets the day off to stay home; the food; and the return of the sun. But I also more deeply understand the meaning for today.

It’s a time to honor all of those who gave their lives in service to our country. Those who served any length of time. And, to those who also serve us in law enforcement and the fire service. Thank you…
