Memorial Day:

Take time today to remember those who have given their lives, so that we can live as free men and women.  If you have  family members who served and have passed on, place flowers on their grave. That is how memorial day started in 1868, by placing flowers on the graves of those killed in the Civil War. 

If you celebrate by going out on your boat, be safe. Wear your lifejackets, and save the booze until you return home.
