For many across the United States, Memorial Day represents the kickoff to summer. Cookouts and parades create a celebratory tone that often disguises the true meaning of this national holiday: a day of remembrance, honoring the proud men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving our nation at home and abroad. This issue of Keeping In Touch provides a variety of resources – pdfs and live links - about this national holiday to use with your student.
