People celebrated Memorial Day all across the country, spending the holiday with family, friends and a few were still hard at work. Many blissfully enjoyed the moments away from their boss and didn’t think twice of the reason for the long weekend; others paused and reflected upon the steep price that has been paid to secure this country’s freedom, and the price that is continuously paid by the blood of our military service members. Some held ceremonies to remember the fallen, some visited graves, and some sat back in their chair with fond memories of brothers and sisters they served with, who they will not see again in this life.
We at SOFREP hope that everyone had a fulfilling time with family and friends, had fun and relaxed — freedom is pointless if it is not enjoyed and embraced. We also hope you had a moment to think about our country’s fallen. For without them, we would live in another world entirely.
Many spent their long weekend away from home, be it in a far away country in service of the United States, or in a cemetery to visit loved ones.
