On Memorial Day weekend, yes, we have time with family and friends, and an extra day off of work, but the purpose for the day is to commemorate those who gave up their Memorial Days...and every other day..so that we can enjoy ours. Taking time to honor them and their sacrifice is what this weekend is all about.
And I love to find and read stories of amazing people who take the time and make it a true passion in life to pay their respects. Such is the story of Morrill Worcester. It is worth taking some time to read.
A young man in a wreath making family in Maine, he turned his own touching experience at Arlington into a lifetime of honor for our military. His simple way of honoring our military each year went largely unnoticed, like many acts of service do, until a photo of the wreaths went viral on the internet and attention was raised.
Now his quiet tribute to our military has become Wreaths Across America. Here at PCSMoves.com we would like to think that there are a lot of people out there like Merrill Worcester. They inspire us. We want to share their message and assist them in their cause of honoring those who have fallen.
To our Military, their Families and all who sacrifice so much for our freedom this Memorial Day, thank you.
