Honoring Our Fallen Heroes this Memorial Day

Memorial Day is a day when our nation comes together to honor the men and women who have died serving in the U.S. Military.

Whether it be a parade, observance, ceremony, or wreath laying there are many local events where you can show your support and solemnly remember those that have served.

The team at KZOOKIDS wishes to thank all of the men and women who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country. May it never be forgotten.
