Memorial Day

Remembering all of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice both at home and abroad in defense of freedom and against tyranny around the world.
This is a day without politics yet a day filled with remembering our dads, moms, brothers, sisters, and friends.
On May 5, 1868, an order issued by General John Logan established a
day of remembrance for those soldiers who died during the Civil War. May
30, 1868, was the day designated for this observance and flowers were
placed on the graves of the fallen soldiers of both the Union and
Confederate Armies. New York was the first state to officially recognize
this observance in 1873 and in 1971 with the passage of the National
Holiday Act; Memorial Day was designated as the last Monday of May.Enjoy your holiday LiveLeak.....NEVER-FORGET
