Memorial Day Weekend in The Villages, Florida

Real Estate Agent with TOUCHSTONE REAL ESTATE SL3537832

The Villages, Florida is a very patriotic community with a high number of retired military and first responders.  You drive around this weekend and you will see flags lining streets and driveways.  Our street is no different as one of our neighbors every holiday that should have flags has flags lining our block and Cul de sac.  The flags are a great reminder of the holiday we are observing!

A little history lesson:  Three years after the Civil War ended, on May 5, 1868, the head of an organization of Union veterans — the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) — established Decoration Day as a time for the nation to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers. Maj. Gen. John A. Logan declared it should be May 30. 

May we all take a moment to reflect this weekend!

Dick Betts sounds like the Villages know how to honor our fallen men and women who have served our country.

I would imagine a lot of veterans or people with an appreciation for the military in the Villages all enjoying the day and giving honor to those that served.

My wife's uncle served in Vietnam. He never came home from his second tour. This is a day for him.
