Memorial Day.  It’s not just a three-day weekend for fun and bar-b-q, it’s a time to honor the men and women who served our nation.

Those fallen heroes who are laid to rest at the Houston National Cemetery were remembered on Sunday as volunteers placed small American flags on their graves.

This in preparation for Monday’s Memorial Day service at the second largest national cemetery in the region.

So take some time this weekend to remember the service and sacrifice of those who fought for our American way of life.
