Do you know about Memorial day? When it was created and why?
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
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 is great to see so many thanking those that are serving and those that severed. I do not mean to belittle these service men and women. We should say thank you to them every day not just on Veterans day.
We really need to thank those that did not come home and remember their families.
