Memorial Day Weekend

Take a minute to remember why we have a long weekend. All those lives lost while fighting for our beautiful country. Those warriors paid the ultimate sacrifice so we can enjoy weekends like these with our loved ones. We owe it to the fallen to live our lives to the fullest and keep them in our hearts and thoughts. Here are the names of the fallen from Massachusetts.  Take a minute to read their names, pause for a moment of reflection and thank our fallen Heroes. RIP
