It's Been an aMAYzing Month!

I hope you’re doing well. Every year on Memorial Day, we celebrate the official start of summer. What’s more, we pay homage to those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

This Memorial Day, as you enjoy a much-needed long weekend, join me in giving thanks and remembering the brave men and women in our Armed Forces who gave their lives so you and I can enjoy the simple things in life.
