Memorial Day with Lefty Lee

Memorial Day with Lefty Lee

Today is Memorial Day. So happy Memorial Day. Many people have the day off work today and many will be spending time with friends and family. But what is Memorial Day all about? Because it’s about more than just a 3 day weekend. Memorial Day is a special day set aside to remember and honor the brave men and women who have fought and died serving their country. It is a time of reflection and remembrance for those that have given the ultimate sacrifice. So for this episode of Don’t Cha Know I talked to local veteran Lefty Lee. We sat down at the local American Legion here in Winona one afternoon last week. It was a pleasure speaking with Lefty and I hope that you enjoy our conversation as much as I did.
