Memorial Day is officially upon us, so we here at Giants 101 wanted to start the morning with a "thank you" to all military families for their sacrifices and all they've had to endure.

"I've known this is what I wanted to do since I was in college. When I enrolled in the school of education while I was at the University of Michigan, I had the opportunity to work with children in football camps in the summer time, and just the feeling I got working with those students and teaching them the simple game of football and watching them respond to my teaching led me to want to go into education."
