The Kickstart

Remarkable Events of Note

Kickstart by Cracked

All please remember that Memorial Day is coming up and we should take the time to remember our Brothers and Sisters who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for Our Country and Our Freedom. 
I know Memorial Day is for the Fallen but please also remember all of our Deployed Brothers and Sisters who will not be home with their families at the BBQ’s, Picnic’s, Memorials, etc.
