On this Memorial Day, also known as Decoration Day, we remember those who have died in service of the United States of America and their families.
Memorial Day was borne out of the Civil War and a desire to honor our dead. It is a day set aside for laying flowers and decorating the graves of soldiers, comrades, family and friends who died in defense of our country.
So on this day, on this weekend, we take a special moment for this very purpose. We remember.
