Today is a day off for many of us. It’s a day to spend with family and friends enjoying the great outdoors or a ballgame or a preferred indoor activity if the weather is a bear. Today, for many, is the unofficial start of the summer vacation season.
But more importantly, today is Memorial Day.
Memorial Day is a federal holiday observed each year on the last Monday of May and it’s dedicated to remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. It’s because of the bravery and courage of our service men and women that we as American citizens are able to enjoy luxuries such as freedom, security and even football.
So before you take the time to consume great Vikings content on vikings.com or relax with family and friends on a day off, please take a moment to remember and honor the brave men and women who’ve given the ultimate sacrifice to ensure our safety and freedom.
