Happy Memorial Day Weekend

Getting Organized:
In your Home and Homeschool 
 

Dear Friends,
Happy Memorial Day Weekend! Spend a few minutes today telling your children what Memorial Day is, and why we honor those who gave their lives in service to our country.
Memorial Day often is treated as the gateway to summer breaks and vacations. It’s a time of getting together with family and friends. We often have cookouts and enjoy being with others.
If you know of someone who lost a military spouse, take time to call them or visit them. Go to a veteran’s memorial or cemetery and leave flags at a service person’s grave.
In the United States, we enjoy freedoms that many countries do not have. These freedoms have come at the cost of lives of our military service men and women.
My family is a military family. My grandfather and his brothers served in World War 2. They all came home from the war alive. One of his brothers was injured and had life-long health issues.
After World War 2, my grandfather joined the Air Force and served 20 years. My father and my uncle also served our country in the Air Force for 20 years. Both of them served during Vietnam.
I am very proud of my military heritage and for their bravery in protecting our country.
Currently, one of my cousins is serving in the Army. He is a young father, and they sacrifice a lot for him to do his job in protecting our country.
It’s important that you teach your children the difference between Memorial Day and Veterans’ Day. We honor the memory of those who gave their lives in service to our country on Memorial Day, and we honor those who served our country in the service on Veteran’s Day.
Have a wonderful weekend!
