All of us have a family member or have known someone that has passed away sacrificing their life for our beautiful Country. On this special day, we honor you, the deceased. We thank you for every selfless act you have given for all Americans. We truly, humbly thank you.
Wikipedia says about Memorial Day, “Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday which occurs every year on the final Monday of May. Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. Formerly known as Decoration Day, it originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the Civil War. By the 20th century Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died while in the military service.”
