SWEETWATER COUNTY, WYOMING — Memorial Day is a day for us as a country to honor and mourn U.S. military personnel who have died while serving the United States armed forces. “This is the day we pay homage to all those who didn’t come home. This is not Veterans Day, it’s not a celebration, it is a day of solemn contemplation over the cost of freedom.” ~ Tamra Bolton
