Del Mar Automotive will be closed beginning Friday, May 24th through Monday, May 27th, in observance of Memorial Day.
For many people Memorial Day marks the beginning of summer, with Labor Day signifying the end. But we should all take a moment and consider the real reason for Memorial Day, to remember and celebrate the sacrifices that members of our military have made on our behalf over the years.
Because of our military strength we have not fought a war on the U. S. mainland since the civil war except for a small skirmish that became known as the Aleutian Islands Campaign of WWII. A small force of Imperial Japanese troops landed on the islands of Attu and Kiska in the Aleutian Islands chain which are part of what is now the State of Alaska – at that time it was the Alaska Territory.
