Memorial Day began in 1868 and was originally called Decoration Day, a day to remember the men and women in our armed forces who had lost their lives while in military service. Memorial Day was originally observed on May 30th until 1968 when, under the Uniform Monday Holiday Act the date was changed to the last Monday in May to create a 3 day holiday for federal employees.
Let’s take a moment to remember the original reason for Memorial Day.
Have a great Memorial Day and enjoy the weekend.
