I hope your Memorial Day is going well but before we hit the beach, fire up the grill and celebrate the unofficial start of summer, we should remember that this is the time to reflect on all of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice to America. But not all war heroes are people.
There is a monument at Arlington National Cemetary dedicated to the Unknown Soldier. It is for the soliders whose remains were not able to be identified. They are still soliders who fought for our freedom and guarding their tomb is one of the highest honors. The guardians are called Sentinels and when they are chosen to serve, their duty lasts for the rest of their lives.
Memorial Day isn't just a day off. Although many of us use the holiday to get the grill fired up and to down a couple cold beers, it's a day to remember soldiers who have served our country and made the ultimate sacrifice. If there was ever a song that says we're thankful to the soldiers who have done just that, this is the song.
Memorial Day originated after the Civil War to commemorate the Union Soldiers killed in the war and was originally known as Decoration Day until 1882. In 1968 Congress moved four national holidays to Mondays in order to create convenient three day weekends.
Today I had the chance to speak with Tim Packman from Dunn Tire Raceway Park on Gunnville Road in Lancaster. We have an awesome time working with Tim every Wednesday night for our WYRK Country Cruise and Bike Night

Our freedom. That's how my family does it. If you really want to observe Memorial Day to the fullest here are some guidelines that will help you proper observe the holiday....
