The BloomBoard office will be closed Monday, May 26 in honor of Memorial Day and will reopen Tuesday, May 27. We respectfully remember and honor the sacrifices that countless women and men have made while serving our country. 

We'd like to share two things as you and your families prepare for the long weekend: a remembrance written by our BloomBoard colleague, Greg McBeth, to honor his friend and serviceman and three lesson plan/classroom resources for teachers about Memorial Day:

In honor and memory of Cpl. Randall Kent Rosacker, U.S.M.C (KIA). 
By Greg McBeth, BloomBoard Vice President of Business Development

I'd like to remember a good friend of mine from my high school, Cpl. Randall Kent Rosacker. He was my high school baseball teammate (and our captain - our field is now named after him and his number is retired). He was also my high school wrestling partner. Randall was a great leader, great friend, and a great American. He turned down a number of football scholarship offers to join the Marines. I heard about his passing the day of my 21st birthday. I will never forget the sacrifice he made for us all. Randall came from San Diego and was assigned to the 1st Battalion, 2nd Marine Expeditionary Brigade, Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. He was killed in action near Nasiriyah, Iraq. Read more about Randall.
