Honoring Memorial Day & Our Hancock Heroes

It’s finally here - Memorial Day weekend. Have a safe time and let’s remember that this day is more than a long weekend that marks the unofficial start of summer. Memorial Day is a time to remember the ultimate sacrifices made by the brave men and women who served our nation.


Each name represents a different story of courage and dedication. Each name left behind friends and family who loved them. These individuals came from diverse backgrounds but were united by a common goal - a desire to defend the United States and its values.


Their commitment and sacrifices deserve our utmost respect and gratitude. As an attorney, I am continually inspired by the principles of justice and liberty that our service members have fought to protect.


Hancock Heroes 


Memorial Day is also a time to recognize and appreciate our living veterans, reserve and active-duty military members. We have a unique way of doing that.


Last month, our firm kicked off a year-long monthly giveaway that specifically honors our military members. Called Hancock Heroes, this program is open to anyone who lives in Hancock County, MS, and has, or is currently, serving in the US military - veterans, reserve, or active-duty members in all branches. 


Click here to sign up - it’s quick and easy. Each month we randomly draw two names who each receive a $50 Visa gift card - no strings attached. It’s just our way of showing appreciation for your service. 


If you’d like to commemorate Memorial Day, here are a few ideas:

  1. Visit a Memorial or Cemetery: Laying flowers or flags at a veteran’s grave or memorial site is a personal way to pay tribute.

  2. Educate and Reflect: Ask a veteran about their experiences and let them know you appreciate their service and sacrifice.

  3. Support Military Families: Consider donating to organizations that support veterans and their families. 

  4. Moment of Silence: Observe a moment of silence at 3 PM local time on Memorial Day, known as the National Moment of Remembrance. 

  5. Do a Random Act of Kindness: Take time to help someone as a gesture of appreciation.


Definitely enjoy your friends and family on Memorial Day - it’s part of the freedoms we enjoy in this country. Ideally, the day may inspire us to strive for a more just and compassionate society. As we enjoy the privileges of living in this nation, let us never forget the cost at which they have come.
