Formerly known as Decoration Day, it commemorates U.S. men and women who died while in the military service. First enacted to honor Union soldiers of the American Civil War (it is celebrated near the day of reunification after the Civil War), it was expanded after World War I.
May God Bless those who served and died for the United States of America. We are a grateful Nation, no matter what anyone says!
