Growing up, Memorial Day meant a day off of school. Even after that, it became a paid day off of work and maybe a vacation to put the extended weekend to good use. A decent amount of the population may still look at Memorial Day in that light. But what did the rest of the country do while I was sipping an adult beverage with a tiny umbrella or making the turn on the golf course?

Memorial Day commemorates the military men and women who gave their lives in service to our country. With a Benchmark Email Memorial Day email template, you can remind your email lists why they get to enjoy their many privileges.
