Memorial Day, not to be confused with Veteran’s Day is a U.S. Federal Holiday that is in place to remembering honor those who sacrificed their lives for our freedom. The holiday was originally known as “Decoration Day” after the civil war ended in 1868. The Grand Army of the Republic, designated a special day to decorate the graves of the fallen with flowers.
Millions of soldiers have died fighting for our country in battle. Remember to honor and thank those who are serving or who have served our country and made the ultimate sacrifice, not only on Memorial Day, but everyday. Let us never forget. God Bless.
