Happy Memorial Day! And please enjoy the long weekend... but if possible, take a moment and go out of your way to say thank you to a veteran. 

For those that served us all, buy a service member a beer if you see one around this weekend. Or call your aunt or uncle that's a veteran and just say thanks. We're all able to enjoy celebrations like this weekend with friends and family because of what they've done for us all.

We've got a quick list of area businesses doing things for service members too. But to all that served so we can write this website each week: thank you.
