Memorial Day May 25, 2009


Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May (May 25 in 2009). Formerly known as Decoration Day, it commemorates U.S. men and women who died while in the military service. First enacted to honor Union soldiers of the American Civil War (it is celebrated near the day of reunification after the civil war), it was expanded after World War I to include American casualties of any war or military action.

  2. I was looking for a photo like that for my post and couldn't find what I was looking for. I had to settle for something else.
    I love all the history you put with your post.
    Have a blessed day, Colleen.
