This year... just like previous years... Ryan has to work Memorial Day. I find it somewhat ironic that my husband who has served multiple deployments and is currently serving his shore duty doesn't get holidays off... including the ones that are military associated. Oh well... one of the many 'perks' of being a military wife.
So as you enjoy your BBQ and your three day weekend... remember how this three day weekend came about. Today is the day to thank a Vet... old, young and those that are still serving our country to make sure we are as free as we can be.
