Memorial Day, a Federal Holiday, is observed today Monday, May 29th in the United States of America as a time for remembering and honoring the men and woman who have died while serving in one of the USA Armed Forces. It was originally called Decoration Day to honor those who had fallen during the Civil War. After World War I, it was extended to include all men and women who died in any war or military action.

Please take the time to remember them as you celebrate the weekend.   

(Veterans Day in November is to honor the service of people who have worn the uniforms of the armed forces.)
