Memorial Day is more than the start of summer. It is an opportunity to pause and remember the sacrifices, the gallantry, and bravery, to remember the fallen.

Over the past century, more than 35 million men and women answered the call to arms in World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, the Persian Gulf, Iraq, and countless other unnamed military engagements. More than half a million of these men and women never came home. Some died in battle, others in captivity; but all died much too soon.

Recent military action in Afganhistan and Iraq has offered vivid reminders of the human reality of war: ordinary men and women leaving their homes and families, to risk their lives for an ideal of honor and duty, to protect the soldier next to them, and to preserve our freedom. People of patriotism and goodwill may debate the merits of any given war, police action, or humanitarian mission. But there should be no debate about our debt to the hundreds of thousands of American citizens who have given the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

Memorial day is a perfect time for us to honor and give thanks to the brave men and women of our Armed Forces who continue to risk their lives–sometimes paying the ultimate price–in order to ensure the peace, safety and prosperity of their fellow American,” stated Jeffrey reynolds, President/CEO of “We at want to make sure that on Memorial Day our veterans, our troops and their families see a flag on every home in America and understand the true depth of our gratitude.”

Federal Reserve Lowers Interest Rates..What Does This Mean For YOU?

How does the Fed affect mortgage rates?

Well, if you have a home equity line of credit based on Prime or short term ARMs based on LIBOR, you should see an immediate reduction in your interest rate in the coming weeks. However, if you are considering a fixed rate loan or longer term ARM with a fixed period of 3, 5, 7 or 10 years, rates on those types of loans are not directly related to the Fed. Instead, these rates are closely tied to the Mortgage Backed Securities that trade on the bond market.
