How will you be remembered?
Memorial Day is a day to remember those who make the supreme sacrifice for our county. Those military members who served and died protecting our freedom and their family members are owed a huge debt of gratitude.
Â But what about you? How will you be remembered? Please donâ€™t forever be known as a person who died in a tragic crash that could have been prevented.
Help ensure your legacy. Doing so requires just a few easy steps:
- Buckle up
- Slow down
- Stay alert
- Pay attention
- Driver sober
Memorial DayÂ is so much more than the unofficial start of summer. See how Decoration Day (Memorial Day) got its start in 1868 – https://youtu.be/CRXrfs0f1Fo
