Remembering Those Who Served…

(Published on - 5/25/2015 1:51:19 AM)

While Memorial day means a day off of work, a family vacation or the start of summer to many, we ask that you take a few minutes to reflect upon what the true meaning of Memorial Day is.

We enjoy freedom today because of the father/mother, the brother/sister,  the son/daughter, the husband/wife that serve our Country each and every day.

The first national celebration of Memorial Day (originally Decoration Day) took place May 30, 1868, at Arlington National Cemetery. The national observance of Memorial Day still takes place there today, with the placing of a wreath on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the decoration of each grave with a small American flag.

Southern women decorated the graves of soldiers even before the end of the Civil War. After the war, a women's memorial association in Columbus, Mississippi, put flowers on the graves of both Confederate and Union soldiers in 1866, an act of generosity that inspired the poem by Francis Miles Finch, "The Blue and the Grey," published in the Atlantic Monthly. In 1971, federal law changed the observance of the holiday to the last Monday in May and extended it to honor all those who died in American wars. People pay tribute not only with flowers but also with speeches and parades. Whom do you honor on Memorial Day?   Source:
