Celebrating Memorial Day

Memorial Day is considered by many as the official start of the summer season. Some of you may be celebrating by going to a cookout with friends and family. Some of you may be heading to the beach to enjoy the sun. And some may just spend the day relaxing. No matter how you enjoy your holiday, it’s important to reflect on and remember what the day represents. Memorial Day is a time to remember those who have served in the US military; those who fought for our country and dedicated their lives to keeping us safe.

On this day of remembrance, MSAA honors all of the men and women who served this country so courageously.

Please note that MSAA’s offices will closed on Monday, May 30th, in observance of Memorial Day. 

Have a safe and enjoyable weekend!
