WLOX Editorial: As we enjoy Memorial Day weekend, let's not forget the real purpose of this federal holiday
Memorial Day signals the unofficial start of the summer season. It is a long holiday weekend filled with traditional family gatherings, barbecues, travel, site seeing, water sports, and plain relaxation.
As we enjoy the long Memorial Day weekend, let's not forget the real purpose of this federal holiday; remembering our military who died in service to this country.
Thousands upon thousands have died wearing the uniforms of the United States military, many from right in South Mississippi. We encourage you to take some time to remember our fallen troops.
