Memorial Day 2020

Here in the United States, the last Monday in May is Memorial Day -- a day to honor our war dead.

It is a day of reverence, respect, and reflection rather than one of celebration.

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.

Please remember to take time today to honor our fallen service members.

May God bless the souls of our fallen veterans and comfort their families. We will not forget you!
