We love Memorial Day Weekend.

At the Jersey shore, it means goodbye to the cold and gloom and hello summertime! The sun, the sand, the water, the boards... does it get any better?

While you're soaking up the sun and barbecuing the day away, take a moment to reflect and remember the true meaning of this holiday - our country's fallen heroes. Every single one of us has ties to the military, some how some way. Whether it's a parent, an aunt or uncle, a cousin, siblings, grandparents, a friend, whomever close to you has served, if they're alive and well today, count your blessings.

So many people have lost a loved one that's fought for our freedom. These heroes are the backbone of the country, the real reason we remain free. They're why we get to define America as "the home of the brave". And they certainly were...

To all those who've served, living and deceased, we've said it before and we'll say it forever: Thank you for your service.

God Bless America. Have a fabulous Memorial Day!
