Everybody has a favorite relative that we look forward to seeing when they come to visit our home. You may have cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, and more but one of my favorite relatives is my uncle Erik. When my uncle came around he always laughed and played with us. He would always take us out and treat us to cool snacks. He would also tell us funny jokes and cool stories about his time in the military.

Memorial Day is one of my favorite holidays because it’s not just about having a 3-day weekend but hanging out with my uncle and seeing how important it was for him to be in the military. Along with Uncle Erik, we have created some of the funniest Memorial Day Jokes for everyone to enjoy!
