Memorial Day (formerly known as Decoration Day) originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the Civil War. By the 20th century Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died in all wars.
Join us today in remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. And let’s not forget those who have served and are still serving our country and fighting for our freedoms today. To you, we humbly say, “Thank you.”
