Memorial Day originated as Decoration Day and separate holidays in the northern and southern United States to honor and decorate the graves of fallen soldiers after the civil war, beginning in 1868.
The holiday was later merged into a common date and revised to honor all who had died during their military careers. It was observed on May 30th until 1970 when it began observance on the last Monday of May. For many, Memorial Day marks the symbolic beginning of summer.
Most of us know of or are related to veterans that have perished while in service to their country. This Memorial Day we honor all of the members of the US military past and present.
