This Memorial Day we remember the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in service of our country.

With a good number of veterans and service members within the Venterra Family, the holiday is one that is close to our hearts. While our employees will enjoy a well-deserved day off from work for  Memorial Day, it’s important that we take time to reflect on the holiday, what it represents, and the individuals we remember.

Having a more full understanding of Memorial Day can help us keep in mind that the day represents much more than just a three-day weekend or a chance to fire up the grill for the first barbecue of the season. From Memorial Day origins to a long-held tradition coming to a close this year, 10 Things to Remember About Memorial Day, presented by Mental Floss, does a great job of highlighting a few holiday facts that we think you might find worth knowing. Take a moment to check them out here.  

 

Wishing you and your family a safe, reflective, and relaxing Memorial Day weekend!
