Happy Memorial Day to all of our US blog readers. It’s the unofficial kickoff to summer in many places across the country. Unfortunately, here in the Pacific NW it’s just another rainy weekend. We don’t get our summer weather until sometime in early July.
Today, Memorial Day, is the day we honor those who died while serving our country. It originally honored those who died during the Civil War. Later it was expanded to include all Americans who have died while in the military service.
