Memorial Day Weekend

While this weekend is an "end of the school year and ready for summer" celebration, for many it is a painful reminder of the sacrifices a loved one has made in service to our great country. As John F. Kennedy said, "as we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest form of appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them." So, as we go about our weekend, let's remember to speak kindly to each other, be generous with forgiveness and grateful for our freedoms. 

Here are some events this weekend that will inspire service, patriotism and honor for our heroes... 

Memorial Day Flags

Memorial Day Flags 
Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery

One of the most recognized and time honored traditions at cemeteries across the nation this weekend, is the placement of flags at the tombstones of military service members. There is an opportunity to do that right here in SA, too. Register 
hereto join a group of volunteers that will be meeting Friday evening at the Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery to place over 1,000 flags. Help will also be needed Tuesday morning to remove flags.
