Ready For Memorial Day Weekend – May 28, 2011
This is what many consider the weekend when summer officially begins. Memorial Day Weekend has arrived. The first long weekend where we actually have nice weather. But, in the midst of the long weekend, lets not forget what this weekend is all about.
As you can see General Sarge and Master Sarge are all set to celebrate this Memorial Day Weekend as they’ve gathered pretty much every flag we have around the house! Since it’s a big celebration for military people General Sarge decided Master Sarge needed to pose for the pic of the day too.
While many people might be camping and others no doubt have bar-b-cues planned, Senator Michael Nozzolio from New York State, a major advocate for our military and veterans reminds us of what this weekend is all about;
“Memorial Day is a powerful reminder that the freedom we enjoy as Americans is not free, but paid for with courage, valor and sadly, the lives of thousands of our fellow Americans. On Memorial Day we remember those heroes who never returned and are grateful for those that did”.
New York State Senator Michael Nozzolio

What Are You Doing This Weekend?
This leads to the next question from General Sarge HQ – What will you be doing to celebrate not only the long weekend, but our military on this Memorial Day Weekend? General Sarge, myself and all our readers here want to know how you will spend the weekend.
Please leave a comment and let us know what you’re doing to celebrate this wonderful weekend.
If you’re in the Rochester, New York area don’t forget the Trot with Troops event coming up on Sunday, May 29. You can find out more information about this event sponsored by Operation Patriot Foundation in the post from yesterday – Day 117: Trot With Troops.
Staying Army Strong!
