Memorial Day weekend traditionally kicks off the summer season with beach trips, picnics, camping, reunions and backyard BBQ's. But most importantly, this weekend was a time to remember American veterans, particularly those who gave their lives in the fight for freedom.
Soldier, rest! Thy warfare o'er,
Sleep the sleep that knows not breaking,
Dream of battled fields no more.
Days of danger, nights of waking. -Sir Walter Scott
Here are a few patriotic upcycled tributes to our military heroes from Etsy and Upcyclers.
