This Memorial Day

Amid so much national loss, it is easy to forget all the people who serve on the front lines against the coronavirus.  Memorial Day is about national service and keeping the memories alive for those who sacrificed their lives to keep us safe from harm.

A Brief History of Memorial Day

Memorial Day, as Decoration Day gradually came to be known, originally honored only those lost while fighting in the Civil War. But during World War I the United States found itself embroiled in another major conflict, and the holiday evolved to commemorate American military personnel who died in all wars, including World War IIThe Vietnam WarThe Korean War and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
