Remebering Our Fallen Heroes

Real Estate Agent with Realty Works

From our family to yours, please enjoy your Memorial Day weekend, but let us not forget -
Memorial Day 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), now the last Monday in the month of May. This was expanded after World War I.

Many people observe this holiday by visiting cemeteries and memorials. A national moment of remembrance takes place at 3:00 p.m. local time. Another tradition is to fly the flag of the United States at half-staff from dawn until noon local time. Volunteers often place American flags on each grave site at National Cemeteries.


Members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars take donations for poppies in the days leading up to Memorial Day; the poppy's significance to Memorial Day is the result of the John McCrae poem "In Flanders Fields".

Please join us in celebrating our brave Men and Women who have given their life defending our freedom, those who have served and those defend our freedom now.

Happy Memorial Day to all Veterans... Please have a wonderful and safe holiday weekend.

Hi Adam, Great post and I think the picture is so touching. My dad was in WW11 and the Korean War. He served proud and long, loved his country and flew many hours protecting it. He retired with a veteran's disability and is now buried at Riverside National Cemetary along with my mother. We must never forget and continue to support our military men and women. Have a great Memorial Day weekend.
