We thought this was a great story to kick off  your Memorial Day weekend.  Tim McGraw has partnered with the Wounded Warrior Project to give 25 mortgage free homes to 25 military families in need.

The homes will be given to 25 different families, in 25 different cities on Tim's upcoming "Brothers of the Sun Tour" with Kenny Chesney.

The project begins Memorial Day Monday when Tim will perform a free concert in New York City for military personnel in town for Fleet Week.

The concert will be broadcast free on the YouTube livestream channel. You have to sign up for it.  The show can also be viewed on the official Pentagon Channel.

Before you start celebrating the first weekend of the summer and throwing back burgers and beer... don't forget the real meaning of Memorial Day.

Here's a video slideshow I found on YouTube with Tim's song "If You Are Reading This"...
