As most Americans take the day off of work today, we would like to take a moment to pay a Memorial Day Tribute to all those hundreds of thousands of American soldiers who have laid down their lives to defend and uphold our country, our peace and freedom.
Memorial day was formerly known as Decoration Day, originating after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the war. People would visit the graves and tombs of fallen soldiers and decorate them with flowers. By the 20th century, this day had been extended to remember and thank all Americans who have died while in the service of the military.
