Did you know Memorial Day dates back to the 1800's? Memorial was first observed on May 30th, 1868 in honor of all of those who lost their lives during the Confederate War. Throughout the years it has been observed by placing wreaths and flags on the graves of soldiers who lost their lives in battles over the years. Even briefly being observed in the early 1900's by wearing a red poppy.
In 2000 the resolution "National Moment of Remembrance" was passed, asking that all Americans take a moment on Memorial Day, at 3pm to honor and remember all of the soldiers who died fighting for our freedom and for those who cannot fight for themselves.
We hope everyone has a blessed Memorial Day and we salute and honor all of those who have fought before us, and continue to fight today. And to the families that have lost a soldier, we honor you and your sacrifices as well.
