Memorial Day 2013

 

Memorial Day is to honor the Veterans who have served in the United States Armed Service and have passed on.

The holiday is observed the last Monday in May and was formerly known as Decoration Day. The tradition started after the Civil war to commemorate the Union and Confederate soliders who had died.

Memorial Day is to remember the men and women who died while serving in the American armed forces.

This should not be confused with Veterans Day, November 11th, which celebrates the service of all U. S. military veterans.

Memorial Day marks the start of summer and many people go camping, have picnics, go hiking, boating or bar-b-que with friends.  It has also become a time where many family members go to cemeteries  to place flowers or visit loved ones that have passed.  The tradition of placing a flag on the gravesite of a Veteran is an activity that takes place in many communities around the country.

Please feel free to use this stock photo from Photos by Carra to share your memorial day thoughts with others.  It will work for the 4th of July as well!

Take some time to reflect in the memory of those who made a difference on Memorial Day 2013
