How does Memorial Day matter to you?  Is that you get a long weekend that is all that matters?  Is that you get to barbecue and have a few beers with friends is that all that matters?

For my family and I it has always been an opportunity for us to remember that there are men and women that gave their lives so that ours would matter.  That we have generation after generation of men and women in our family tree that have served in some form or another for our country.  So for us when it comes to Memorial Day it is the men and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice so that we can have the freedoms that we enjoy.  Like having a long weekend. Like having a barbecue and a couple of beers with friends. Let us not forget why we have this holiday.

So thank you to Clayton P. Hoffman (grandpa), thank you Phil Bloyer (dad), thank you Clay Bloyer (brother), and ultimately Sheldon E. Bloyer.

Who are those that you choose to remember when it comes to Memorial Day?
