Every year around this time, Merrill Park in Eagle becomes a place of reverence and honor. Take time to go see it and reflect on your freedoms.

The Eagle Field of Honor flags will fly through the Memorial Day Holiday. You can walk among the flags and pay gratitude to the men and women that each flag represents.

Memorial Day signals the "start of summer" and most people celebrate the three day weekend with cookouts, grilling, camping, picnics and family activities. I hope that you will take a few minutes to remember why we really celebrate Memorial Day, and why we are able to have cookouts, grilling, camping, picnics and family activities.

So go, walk among the flags. Take your kids and teach them why we celebrate Memorial Day in America, land of the free....home of the brave.

For love of country they accepted death...  ~James A. Garfield
