Happy Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day to all!  Here in Albuquerque, Memorial Day has become the unofficial start of summer, since our schools are out starting mid to late May.  The day is celebrated with parades, barbecues, fireworks, and parties. 

Let's not forget the "memorial" part of the holiday in the midst of the festivities.  Today we honor and remember all who have died in the service of our country. Here's an infographic of the history of this holiday.  Click on the image to see a larger view.
