Bringing back the true meaning of Memorial Day.
Honoring the Fallen, their families and the ones they left behind.
Almost 1 million men and women have died for our country since the American Revolution in 1775. How do we repay that debt to our service members on Memorial Day? A day off from work to retrieve that mattress that is finally on sale and a BBQ with some friends. We as Americans have become spoiled, with the brave men and women that will raise their right hands for nothing to give their lives for our freedoms. Mission Memorial Day has seen our friends killed in front of us, and had our bodies bruised and broken. We climb to chase away our past, but also to remember our ghosts.
So, we set out on a mission. We want to inspire a dismissal of the current norm for the last Monday in May and embrace in a dutiful remembrance of our loved ones. The day is about honoring their sacrifice, by decoration of monuments and graves, or by pushing ourselves to exhaustion and fulfilment while we carrying the names of the fallen. Mission Memorial Day is set on the task to bring back the true meaning of Memorial Day and not only serve those that made it back from the battle field, but those who didn't. We must never forget to honor the fallen.
