This past weekend was the Memorial Day Holiday weekend.  I had the pleasure of working through the weekend.  I say pleasure because I worked the Gallabrae Highland Games that were held at Furman University on May 24, 2014.  The games were  a celebration of the Scottish heritage as well as a celebration of Memorial Day.  The opening ceremonies for the games were a colorful parade of all the military service color guards, the parade of the Tartans and include a detachment of the Royal Highland Fusiliers.  There were veterans from every military branch in attendance.  I was able to meet some real ‘Hero’s’ during this event.  It made me remember what this Memorial Day holiday was all about. to remember those that served and made the ultimate sacrifice.
