🇺🇸 Honoring The Fallen on Memorial Day 🇺🇸

 

Memorial Day dates back to the Civil War. Because of the heavy losses, it acted as a way to honor service people who died serving in the U.S. military. It was originally called Decoration Day.

 

In 1868. Major General John A. Logan, leader of the Grand Army of the Republic (a group of Union veterans), declared May 30th a day to decorate the graves of fallen soldiers with flowers. Many cities and towns already had similar traditions. Logan's proclamation helped unify them into a national day of remembrance.

 

 

On May 30th. In 1971, the Uniform Monday Holiday Act made Memorial Day a federal holiday on the last Monday of May. So, Memorial Day started as a way to remember those lost in the Civil War and transformed into a day to honor all who are lost while serving in the U.S. military.

 

 

My aunt became a double Gold Star recipient because it was her husband and their only son that perished in separate wars. When loved ones die during war times, the heart is never the same, the weight of loss and sorrow remains heavy.

 

Rest In Peace heroes, you'll always be remembered, honored and loved!

Hi Wanda,
I pray we don't lose the freedoms for which so many gave their lives. I believe we need a stronger history ciriculum in our educational system.

Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! I flew back today from visiting my youngest son who lives just south of Washington DC.  On our way to the airport we went by Arlington Cemetery, it was a very sobering moment.

I can't even imagine having to fight in a war myself or having to deal with a family member who is doing so.  I have a lot of respect for those who have to deal with that in their life.

My cousin never married or had the opportunitiy to become a parent, Brian England. His dad died in the Korean War when he was less than a year old. So sad!
