Memorial Day in the U.S.
May 26, 2014
Post a message on our Memorial Wall in honor of someone that has given their life.
Memorial Day is a federal holiday observed annually in the United States on the last Monday of May. Formerly known as Decoration Day, it originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the fallen Union soldiers of the Civil War. (Southern ladies organizations and southern school children had decorated Confederate graves in Richmond and other cities during the Civil War, but each region had its own date. Most dates were in May.) By the 20th century Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died in all wars. Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.
No matter what country you live in, please take a moment this weekend to remember all those that have given their lives for our safety and our freedoms. PagePath Technologies honors them all.
