Happy Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day to all of our soldiers, past and present, that have kept us safe and free for over 240 years!

Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., joined the U.S. Navy in 1941 and fought in World War II. He was decorated for several achievements and was even knighted by King George VI. You can read a brief timeline and list of achievements in the Military tab.

Thank you to Fairbanks and the countless other soldiers that have put their lives on the line for us all.
