Memorial Day Eddie. Today and every single moment we thank heroes like you who gave all to protect our freedom. It is NOT an easy day, today or any day knowing that "that hero" was someone's daddy, little brother, favorite uncle, best friend, etc.
Many people "celebrate" Memorial Day, but the Rojas Family mourns.
