Memorial Day

American Troops in Parade

 

While we all get to enjoy a 3 day weekend this weekend, let’s not forget about the service men and women who died fighting for our freedom. Whether they fought in Afghanistan, Iraq, Vietnam, Korea, WWII, WWI, the Civil War, or any other war, we wouldn’t be where we are today without them.

Watch a short video from History on the background of Memorial Day here. Originally named Decoration Day, Memorial Day started shortly after the Civil War.
