Memorial Day is a day for us all to remember those who died while serving in the United State Armed Forces. It was named Decoration Day & started after the Civil War to commemorate the Union & 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.
One way we honor our men & women is to put an American flag on each grave in national cemeteries & cemeteries around the world.
Memorial Day is not to be confused with Veterans Day; Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving, while Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans.
Some are celebrating this day with a picnic or a barbecue. Some businesses cut their prices on their products. Not all Americans are celebrating this holiday with such spirited enthusiasm. Some families are staring at a flag that flies at half-staff with tears in their eyes. So let’s take a moment out of the celebrations to reflect on the true meaning do Memorial Day, and all the sacrifices that our military personal has made for us all.
I love our military. They sacrifice so much to keep this country FREE. I just want to say THANK YOU to all the family members of all the fallen soldiers. Your support allowed them to go and help make this country safe. God bless you all.
Let us remember all the Military Men & Women who gave their lives for our Country.
