As we honor men and women who died in military service for Memorial Day, we also celebrate life, health and warmer weather by grilling meals outside. We talk with a grilling and BBQ expert about how to make the most of the experience. We also reflect how Muslims in Wisconsin have observed the month of Ramadan during the pandemic. And we talk about how COVID-19 is impacting Memorial Day weekend.
