Remembering the Fallen

flags1

It comes so fast, but Memorial Day is upon us once again.  For most of us, Memorial Day has come to mean family get-togethers, barbeques, the beginning of summer and a long weekend. But Memorial Day of course means much more.

Memorial Day wasn’t always known as Memorial Day.  It wa s once knows as “Decoration Day.”   It was first created to commemorate Union soldiers who had given their lives in the Civil War.  After the First World War  it became a far more expansive day to include American deaths  of any military action or war.

With the U.S. engaged in two wars, let’s be sure not to let this national holiday pass without  proper acknolwedgment.

So while we are so fortunate to enjoy this—-one of the great holidays of the year—while we are getting together with family and friends let’s be sure to remember those who have fallen while serving our country.  It is the least we can do and would mean a great deal to the families of the heroes who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
