Memorial Day

Memorial Day is a day celebrated in the US in honor and tribute to the soldiers who have lost their lives to serve and protect our country.


"I have never been able to think of the day as one of mourning; I have never quite been able to feel that half-masted flags were appropriate on Decoration Day.
I have rather felt that the flag should be at the peak, because those whose dying we commemorate rejoiced in seeing it where their valor placed it. We honor them in a joyous, thankful, triumphant commemoration of what they did. "
~Benjamin Harrison
 

In memory and honor of those who have fought and died to keep our country free.

May God continue to protect and bless the United States of America!
Wishing you a safe and Happy Memorial Day!

I'm with Benjamin Harrison... I think the American flag should be flown high and proud on Memorial Day!
