Gratitude on Memorial Day

Did you know that Memorial Day was formerly known as Decoration Day? Memorial Day originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the fallen Union solders of the Civil War. However, by the 20th century, Memorial Day was extended to honor all Americans who have died in all wars.  

On this Memorial Day, let us remember the brave men and women who have served and are currently serving to protect the people of the United States of America.

Thank you.
