In memory of those brave individuals who served, fought and died in the service of this great nation, we honor them this and every Memorial Day. Memorial Day was originally known as Decoration Day and was first observed in 1868 to decorate the graves of the civil war dead. It was originated by proclamation of General John A Logan on May 5th of that same year.
For many reasons, this is truly a day of remembrance.
