The videos below are from Memorial Day services that remind us what we are gathering for and why we take a special day off to remember.

Memorial Day is not just a day to stay at home and relax. Not just a day to take a long weekend to go camping. There is a reason behind this day. The freedom to have this extra day off as free people came at a heavy price.

This first video is from Cheyenne Wyoming.

From the Wyoming National Guard. Soldiers of the Wyoming Military Department share who they remember on this Memorial Day is a time to remember the men and women who sacrificed their lives for the United States.
