A Memorial Memorial Day

Let us pause.....and take a moment to reflect on this day and pay our respect to all those veterans of foreign  and domestics wars who gave the ultimate sacrifice....their lives.

Here's what Wikipedia says it means:

 Memorial Day is a federal holiday observed annually in the United States on the last Monday of May.[1] Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.[2] Formerly known as Decoration Day, it originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union 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. It typically marks the start of the summer vacation season, while Labor Day marks its end.
