Memorial Day is much more than a day off
Today we honor those who are working longer and harder hours than 9-5.
Today, most Americans will enjoy sleeping in, warmer weather, free time with friends and family, big barbecues in the park or trips out of town. Memorial Day is the beginning of summer for most of us, and that's because we're home in America, enjoying the freedoms and privileges that come with being red, white and blue.
Not every American's Memorial Day will be like that, though. For many men and women, today will be filled with uncertainty, strength and sacrifice while they serve currently or have served in the past for the United States' military.
Take a moment today to honor those who have served for our country, and check out CareerBuilder's thanks and resources for veterans. We thank the service men and women who have fought for us and the freedoms we have today.
