Featured Holiday – Memorial Day

Memorial Day – Memorial Day is a day that the United States remembers the soldiers who lost their lives so they can live in a free country. It was first observed on May 30, 1868. However, in the beginning, not all states celebrated this holiday. It did not become nationally recognized and accepted until 1971. Unfortunately, today, the true purpose of this special day has been lost in cook outs, beer drinking, and a day off from work. Don’t get me wrong…all that is great…BUT, Let’s not forget the cost of our freedom.
