Take a look at these Memorial Day pictures! This is the time of year when we remember all those who have served so that our freedom could be preserved. We owe them everything, and it’s important to make sure they’re never forgotten. Memorial Day is a time to honor those who have served and sacrificed their lives for our country. Take a look at these pictures of the day’s events!
The observance called Memorial Day was originally designed as an opportunity to commemorate all Americans lost in battle, not just soldiers from World War I or II- but today it has evolved into more than that. It commemorates American servicemen killed during any war, anywhere around the globe since 1775 – such brave men deserve recognition too!
This year we’re celebrating with barbecue dishes (perfectly seasoned ribs) grilled on open fire pits by family and friends; there will be plenty of outdoor activities like picnics and games galore so come join us for some good ol’ fashioned fun this.
Memorial Day is just around the corner, and many people have been asking questions about what it means. To answer some of these inquiries, here are a few things you might not know about Memorial Day:
Memorial day originated in 1868 as an observance to honor those fallen from US Civil War which was fought between 1861-1865; It’s also known as Decoration Day or simply “The” day after Thanksgiving (A holiday celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November); In 1971 Congress passed legislation making May 31th every year National Memorial day.
Memorial Day is a day to honor our fallen soldiers. Here are some pictures of Memorial Day from years past. This year on Monday, May 31th, Americans will be remembering those who lost their lives in service with the annual honoring ceremony held at Arlington National Cemetery and other locations throughout America’s towns and cities as we solemnly remember what it means to live in freedom for all people while standing beside those that have paid such an ultimate price.
