Memorial Day is more than just time off from work and the beginning of summer- it's a chance to commemorate those who have sacrificed their lives in the country's service.
Glen Cove has a number of events and services throughout the weekend offering folks the opportunity to observe the holiday together.
Know anyone who has served and lost friends? Are you a veteran whose thoughts are with the memory of a fellow soldier who fell on foreign soil?
Please share your thoughts, plans or memories of those who were lost to war in the comments section below.
