Formerly known as Decoration Day the 30th day of May, 1868, was designated for the purpose of decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country. The foundation of our Nation was laid by Men & Women of the Armed Forces of The United States. The loss of life in service to Country & Corps must not be forgotten, additionally, many of us have friends and loved service members today facing life and death situation in Iraq & Afghanistan.
Let us ensure that we keep them in our thoughts & prayers as we reflect on their commitment, devotion and the many sacrifices to ensure we continue to live in the Greatest Nation on the Earth. This year Memorial Day will be observed on Monday May 25th. As a sign of respect or mourning the flag is displayed at half-staff from dawn until noon local time.
If you know anyone that has served/serves our great country either in the past or present don’t forget to extend your appreciation and gratitude for preserving our freedom. God Bless America.Vaughn Berger (Owner, Red Square Pools) firstname.lastname@example.org (702) 530-7331
