Monday (May 29) Memorial Day was celebrated here in the United States. While the weekend surrounding the holiday is viewed by many as the unofficial kickoff to summer, a number of celebrities like Justin Timberlake and Katy Perry took the time to honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.

❤️🇺🇸Memorial Day is always a powerful reminder to put aside our small daily concerns and petty grievances, and allow ourselves to be humbled by the magnitude of the sacrifices made for us by our Veterans and their families. I am continually grateful to all our men and women in service now, and the job they do—day in and out, often far from home and loved ones—protecting our freedom. I bow my head and my heart, and I thank them. "The greatest casualty is being forgotten" is the motto of the Wounded Warrior Project, and I encourage you to make any contribution you can whether it be monetary, your time or simply spreading the word. There are several other organizations that provide different services for our veterans and their families, check them out below today and see which one touches your heart: @wwp @the_22_project @sofwarriorfnd 🇺🇸❤️ (Wounded Warrior Project link in bio)
