Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday that commemorates United States soldiers who died while in the military service.
First enacted to honor Union soldiers of the American Civil War, it was extended after World War I to honor Americans who have died in all wars.
During this long weekend, we should all be thinking of the men and women who died while serving in the American military. You can observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries, flying the United States flag, or attending memorials.
We proudly recognize and honor every woman and man who lost their life while serving in the American Military!
