Happy Memorial Day

Today we remember all of the men and women who have sacrificed their lives fighting for our country. Memorial Day started as a day to remember those who were killed in the Civil War and expanded to include those killed in all American wars after World War I. Memorial Day was declared a national holiday in 1971. In the year 2000, Congress passed ‘The National Moment of Remembrance Act’. This act encourages all Americans to pause for a moment of reflection, to remember and honor those who have died in service to this country, at 3 p.m. local time on Memorial Day.
