Memorial Day a chance to reflect

Published 9:48 am Saturday, May 25, 2019

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 in all wars. It typically marks the start of the summer vacation season, while Labor Day marks its end.

We are thankful for those who gave their lives so we can have our freedom. Whatever you find yourselves doing this weekend, we hope you have a safe and happy Memorial Day.
