With Memorial Day approaching, I think about last fall when I visited Wisconsin and was both impressed with and proud of the way the people from my home state were remembering and honoring their fellow Wisconsinites who served our country over the years.
My husband and I visited two of the local small communities in the area and found both communities to have beautiful memorials to the men and women that served our country. I was very pleased to see this since I have relatives that were mentioned at both memorials.
Memorial Day weekend is always a kick-off to summer and most likely filled with family fun activities. However, I do think that it is important to remember this holiday for what it was meant for – to remember and honor our fallen for whom this day is set aside.
Below are some pictures that we took of these memorials. Does you community do something special to remember and honor your veterans?
