Honoring Those Who Served

“It doesn't take a hero to order men into battle. It takes a hero to be one of those men who goes into battle.” ~ Norman Schwarzkopf

Memorial Day, the holiday set aside to honor those men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces, was once known as Decoration Day.

The day of remembrance was created after the War Between the States to honor both Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the war. Later, the day was designated as a day to honor all Americans who died while in military service.
