This Memorial Day, DON’T FORGET To Honor Those Who Made the Ultimate Sacrifice
PHOENIX – (May 21, 2014) As Memorial Day approaches, whether you’re making plans to kick off summer with a weekend getaway, organizing a barbecue with friends and family or planning on perusing sales advertised in newspapers… don’t forget to take a moment to honor our brave servicemen and women who made the ultimate sacrifice to ensure our nation’s freedom.
With Memorial Day becoming less and less of an occasion of remembrance and more of a long holiday weekend to spend relaxing with friends and family, it’s important to remember that the freedoms we enjoy daily are not free. Many families will be spending this Memorial Day mourning the loss of a loved one who selflessly gave their life so that we can enjoy ours.
There are many ways to honor our heroes on Memorial Day. Whether you’re alone or spending time with family and friends, one way to pay tribute is to tune in, on Monday, May 26th, to the 2014 National Memorial Day Parade, which will be televised LIVE nationally on Reelz, around the world on The Pentagon Channel, in Washington, D.C. on News Channel 8, and streamed on military.com.

U-Haul honors our fallen heroes and the familes they left behind, and will be showcasing commemorative SuperGraphic trucks honoring the five branches of the military — Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force and Coast Guard — to honor and show our support for the men and women who have served and are still proudly serving in the armed services .
U-Haul also created the United We Stand SuperGraphic in honor of those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. The Wounded Warrior Project — Soldier Ride SuperGraphic is dedicated to honoring and empowering the brave men and women who have been injured in conflicts around the world.
So, no matter what your Memorial Day may have in store, please take a moment to honor and remember those Americans who died defending freedom!
