Remember and honor

Memorial Day is a truly patriotic holiday which is celebrated on the last Monday in May. A day set apart for remembering and honoring those who died while serving in the American Armed Forces.

"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,the 23rd President of the United States.

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