Memorial Day

In honor of those who gave all ... thank you for your ultimate service/sacrifice for our Nation and its people. May your families be comforted by the Savior today and always.
Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May (May 25 in 2009). 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 to include American casualties of any war or military action.
