Memorial Day is a great long weekend for most people in the United States.
But the point isn’t to take a day off just to go to the lake for a cookout.
Memorial Day, originally titled Decoration Day, is to honor and remember the men and women of the United States Armed Forces who died during their service. Take some time to think about that this weekend as you enjoy your time off.
Having an extra day off is a great time to get your finances straightened out. Here are some good reads for that:
