In Remembrance

Memorial Day (formerly called Decoration Day) is a U.S. federal holiday observed each year on the last Monday in May to remember men and women who died while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. The observance was started after the American Civil War to commemorate Union and Confederate soldiers who died in that war. It was extended after World War I to honor all Americans who died serving in military service and became a national holiday in 1971.
