Memorial Day

Originally called Decoration Day, which came from the tradition of decorating the graves of fallen soldiers.  Gen. John A. Logan of the Grand Army of the Republic commemorated the fallen Civil War soldiers which was observed on May 30, 1968.   In 1971, Congress passed the Uniform Monday Holiday Act which established Memorial Day as a National Holiday to be observed on the last Monday of May.

As we approach Memorial Day, let us take a moment and pay tribute to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.  Also, give thanks to all of our United States Armed Forces for their continued commitment to our freedom.  Below are a few ways you can show your appreciation on Memorial Day.


1.       Fly your American Flag.

2.       Place flowers on the grave of a fallen soldier.

3.       Send a personal note to a veteran or current member of the armed forces.

4.       Observe a moment of silence. (Usually two minutes observed at 3:00pm EST.)

5.       Attend a memorial service.

6.       Visit memorials.

7.       Attend a Memorial Day Parade.

8.       Thank a Veteran.
