Happy Memorial Day!!

Today is more than just a day off! We need to remember our Soldiers who fought in War. Today is a  Federal Holiday in remembrance of how many people sacrificed their lives for the safety and freedom of the United States.  Yes, we are a FREE country although everything has it's price.  Today I give honor and thanks to family, friends and loved ones who had someone in the service who passed away!
As people are commemorating all U.S. Service Members who died while in Military Service.  The recognition of the fallen victims was then enacted under the name "Memorial Day" by an organization of Union Veterans.  The Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) to honor Union soldiers of the American Civil War.  Overtime it was extended after World War I to honor all Americans who have died in all Wars.
