Originally called Decoration Day, this was a day on which flags and flowers were placed on the graves of soldiers who died in the American Civil War; today we remember all of our service members who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

The Young Dead Soldiers
May God bless the souls of our fallen veterans and comfort their families. We will not forget you!
Mags, Cam, and our bipeds
