Most of you are looking forward to a three day weekend I am too. Monday is a Memorial Day to honor men and women who died serving in US Armed Forces. My first thought goes to my cousin who died in Vietnam so long ago.
Memorial Day is a US federal holiday wherein the men and women who died while serving in theUnited States Armed Forces are remembered. The holiday, which is celebrated every year on the final Monday of May, was formerly known as Decoration Day and originated after the American Civil Warto commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the Civil War. By the 20th century, Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died while in the military service.It typically marks the start of the summer vacation season, while Labor Day marks its end.
Thinking of the US Armed Services what also comes to mind is Salute Mission Critical.
Take a of bit time to remember those in the armed forces.
