If I'm going to be completely honest, when I realized it was Memorial Day weekend, my first thought was, "Yes! Day off with the hubby!" Jello shots, sunscreen and sandy beaches. I know many of you are thinking the same.

However, let us not forget why we have this Monday off of work. Memorial Day is a federal holiday that honors the men and women whom died while serving this nation. Whether you agree with their tasks or not, they have time and time again put themselves between you and harms way. For that, they should be remembered.

My husband was recently at the Nashville airport where he heard Mitch Rossell playing a few tunes in the lobby area. A Soldier's Memoir was written by he and Joe Bachman.
