We honor those who have died in military service to our country

May 24, 2008

Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday that is observed on the last Monday of May (observed in 2008 on May ). It was formerly known as Decoration Day. This holiday commemorates U.S. men and women who have died in military service to their country. It began first to honor Union soldiers who died during the American Civil War. After World War I, it was expanded to include those who died in any war or military action.
