Virtually Celebrating Memorial Day

May is National Military Appreciation month and also the month that we celebrate Memorial Day. Memorial Day is a day to solemnly reflect on military personnel and veterans who have died.

And while this year will be different than others in the ways we celebrate our deceased service members, there are still plenty of opportunities to reflect and honor them.
