Memorial Day

Memorial Day
Remember why we celebrate this holiday......

Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May.
Formerly known as Decoration Day, it commemorates U.S. men and women who died
while in the military service.
First enacted to honor Union soldiers of the American Civil War
(it is celebrated near the day of reunification after the Civil War),
it was expanded after World War I.
