Memorial Day: Trivia that you probably didn't know!

This Monday is Memorial Day, which means that right now all around the country people are jetting out of work early, packing the kids into the car, and heading out for a long weekend full of picnics, parades, fireworks, the beach, and (if you’re lucky) some really good booze. Memorial Day marks the beginning of summer vacation, but more importantly it serves as a day of remembrance and gratitude for those who have died protecting our country.

Here at Central Nebraska Imaging, we are so incredibly grateful to those who have served and continue to serve our country. It is thanks to the sacrifices of these soldiers that we are safe and sound in our country. It's unbelievable to imagine that our soldiers put their life on the line for the safety of their friends, family, and even strangers. Their sacrifices should never go unnoticed which is why Memorial Day aims to ensure they have a day to be honored. 

Many people pay tribute to our fallen soldiers in their own unique ways, however the majority of people attend parades, BBQs, etc. It's nice to have a large group of people join together to honor the most selfless people in our country. So, we looked around, and we found some fun and pretty interesting facts and figures about Memorial Day itself and the celebrations that occur throughout the country on this special holiday. Here they are!

So, how are you celebrating your Memorial Day this coming Monday? There are so many avenues to celebrate, but just keep in mind the importance of today. Be sure to reach out to soldiers that are currently fighting, veterans, etc., and let know know how much you respect their sacrifices. What better way to honor fallen soldiers by letting the ones currently here know how much they are appreciated? Happy Memorial Day, everyone!
