Make Memorial Day Memorable
Memorial Day is right around the corner. We will celebrate and honor many brave soldiers this year on May 29th. This special day was established by John A. Logan, the Organization of Union Veterans leader, in 1868. The day was initially organized to honor the brave military service members who died during the Civil War. Over time, Memorial Day has evolved into a time of remembrance for each person that has served our country, with traditions like the Memorial Day Parade in Washington DC and the laying of the wreaths in Arlington National Cemetery. It is an honorable day that allows us to reflect on the sacrifices made by servicemen and women from the Civil War to World War II and beyond.
