www.lasvegasmtg.com report: Remembering our Las Vegas Nevada Veterans on Memorial Day is more then an excuse to have an extra day off. It is a time to remember those that have sacrificed so much for the freedoms we take for granted. Without their sacrifices the veterans and their families have made what would America be today? Most Americans are removed from the impact that the families experience daily when their loved ones are separated for long periods of time in war time or deployed in foreign countries.
