Memorial Day is a US federal holiday wherein the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces are remembered. The holiday, which is celebrated every year on the final Monday of May, was formerly known as Decoration Day and originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the Civil War.
Many people visit cemeteries and memorials, particularly to honor those who have died in military service. Many volunteers place an American flag on each grave in national cemeteries.
May you and your family have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend, Lord protect and watch over us all,and Lord I say thank you for all those soldiers who gave their lives so that we can have freedom, in Jesus name I pray AMEN
