A day to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice for us. Memorial day has origins possibly pre Civil War. Definitely post Civil War when flowers were laid on the graves of Confederate and Union soldiers who died in that terrible war. A tradition which became Decoration Day. Became Memorial Day, now a federal holiday, and now always on the last Monday in May.
Thank you will never seem enough for the men and women who died in the service of their country. Remember them today.
