While this long holiday weekend most often signifies the beginning of summer with the kids out of school, pools opening, picnics and BBQs with friends and family, and overall celebration, we must remember WHY we have this holiday. Memorial Day is here for us to remember the sacrifice made by men and women who have served our country in order for us to enjoy the freedom that is so important to Americans. So please remember to take a moment to thank our veterans this weekend, and every day.

Happy Memorial Day from the Nick Flerlage Team!
