Memorial Day 2015

Just a quick note to our US based readers to enjoy your Memorial Day weekend and don't forget the fallen heroes of wars past and present.  Memorial Day was originally known as Decoration Day to honor the 110,000 troops killed in action during the American Civil War.  In 1967 the final Monday of May was declared a federal holiday for all soldiers who have died in service.



Enjoy your day off work (or overtime if you are required to work) and do not forget to remember the folks who have made this weekend possible by paying the ultimate sacrifice. 


 Got a memorial day story to share, or a someone to honor?  Comments below.
