10 Memorial Day Quotes … Because We Will Never Forget!

Patriotic quotesTechnically the calendar says summer doesn't start until June, but Memorial Day weekend is an unofficial start to a summer of barbecues, parades, and all-around fun. But let's not forget what the holiday is really all about: a patriotic tribute to our fallen, the men and women who gave their lives so we might be free.

Patriotic quotes remind us that today's a day to honor the dead, to visit the veterans cemetery, to show that you are free to be an American because of the brave. And what better way to show your American spirit than by wearing your heart on your sleeve?

Feel free to share these quotes on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc... to show our military families that America is behind them, and we appreciate all they have done for us.
