We Salute Our Vets And Military On Memorial Day

Today is Memorial Day; a day off for many and of day of remembrance for all. Today, we remember those in our military who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice for our country and  thank those who are now serving in the military. And like many of  you, we have family now serving as well.

Here’s a brief history of how Memorial Day came about courtesy of Wikpedia:

“Memorial Day, formerly known as Decoration Day, it originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the fallen Union soldiers of the Civil War. By the 20th century Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died in all wars. Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.

Many people visit cemeteries and memorials, particularly to honor those who have died in military service. Many volunteers place an American flag on each grave in national cemeteries.

It also became a long weekend devoted to family gatherings, fireworks, trips to the beach, and national events such as the Indianapolis 500 auto race, held since 1911 on the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend.”
