Memorial Day and the Red, White and Blue

Memorial Day declares the unofficial start of summer with picnics, camping, backyard barbecues and perhaps the season’s first trip to the beach or the mountains. Among all the summer kick-off festivities is the remembrance of those who gave their lives that we might relish in precious freedom.
