Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation's service.   We salute are men and women in uniform and extent our gratitude for your sacrifice.

FYI, Memorial Day was officially proclaimed on 5 May 1868 by General John Logan, national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic.  It all 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 typically marks the start of the summer vacation season as well.

Thank you!
