Discounts to Use This Memorial Day Weekend for Military & Veterans

Memorial Day is a time to honor all those who have served and lost their lives for our country. We take the day to think about the friends and family we have lost, pray for their loved ones, and remember their sacrifice.  

For many people, Memorial Day weekend is also the beginning of summer. This is when pools might open for the season, when you know you can put away any of your cold-weather clothing, and you might be able to find some discounts to use, either military or non-military-related.
