On this #MemorialDay2021: Remembering
A little history about Memorial Day.
Memorial Day was first observed in May 1868. First called Decoration Day Major Gen John A. Logan declared that this day should be observed on May 30thas a time for the nation to “decorate” the graves of those that gave their lives in the Civil War. The first observance was held that same year at the Arlington National Cemetery.
Memorial Day is the day for the national remembrance of all those who died serving the United State of America. Let us remember all those who gave up their comforts of home to protect our country and who sacrificed their lives for our freedom. Thank you for your service.
