...Formerly known as Decoration Day, it originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the fallen Union soldiers of the Civil War.
By the 20th century Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died in all wars.
Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. -excerpts from Wikipedia

God bless them, one and all!

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

John 15:13 "Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends." A wonderful tribute to those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for freedom! Well done Judy! ;-)

@franz: I agree, Franz, but Abraham Lincoln determined we should remember, and annually since the Civil War, this holiday is set aside for remembering.

Nicely presented, Judy, and my recognition and respect for this national holiday in our great neighbor's country.
