Happy Memorial Day from BillionGraves!
Memorial Day is a day for all of us to reflect on the Veterans who sacrificed their lives to give us our freedom, and gave us a day and a place to honor their memory.
At BillionGraves I have had the very unique opportunity to view hundreds of thousands of pictures of servicemen and women who gave their lives in pursuit and protection of Freedom. Each photograph, preserving a single moment in time of the final resting places of those brave men and women who paid the ultimate price in order for us to have the freedoms that we have today.
Today, I encourage us all to look beyond the photos and to remember the lives, legacies and sacrifices that each of these headstones represent. Every one of these pictures represents a story, a family, a legacy that needs to be remembered and honored.

Regardless of where you live, let us never forget the men and women who have served and who will continue to serve each of us around the world in the pursuit and defense of individual liberty.
Today I personally reflect on the close family members who served and sacrificed in order for me to have the freedoms that I have today. I’m eternally grateful to them and the wonderful examples they have been to me throughout my life!
Have a wonderful and safe Memorial Day!
