Memorial day

Right after the US's Civil War, people began decorating the graves of fallen soldiers to honor them and their sacrafice. "Decoration Day" was held on May 30 each year to honor the fallen heros. During WWI it was changed to Memorial Day and in 1967 it was changed by congress to the last Monday of each May. Remember those who gave ultimate sacrafice for our freedom, may they rest in peace.

Happy Memorial day to all those in the USA.
And please be safe today, the roads, water, and everything else will be busy I am sure.
