Memorial Day






Memorial Day, which falls on the last Monday of May, honors the men and women who died while serving in the American military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, holding family gatherings and participating in parades. Unofficially, at least, it marks the beginning of summer. In 2011, Memorial Day is observed on Monday, May 30.


Thank you to all the Military men and women who have served and are serving our country, sacrificing their lives for our freedom. 


Thank you E for all you have sacrificed and keeping our country safe. I love you so very much!!
