Memorial Day weekend is upon us and for most it signals the end of school and the start to summer. Let's not forget what Memorial Day is all about. It's a day to remember all the military service men and women who died in battle or as a result of wounds sustained in battle.

Memorial Day is also a day when we honor all veteran and military members with freebies, as a way to say thank you for your service. From free food, to buy one get one deals to shopping deals for everybody, The Memorial Day three day weekend is a great time for everyone to relax, unwind and do some traveling.
