Memorial Day

Memorial Day: (first called Decoration Day)
It’s not Veterans Day. It’s not military appreciation day. Don’t thank me for my service. It’s “take the time to pay homage to the men and women who died while wearing the cloth of this nation you’re so freely enjoying today, day.”
.
Beaches, beats and BBQs. No
The start of summer. No
A day off work. No
.
The 30th day of May, 1868, is designated for the purpose of strewing with flowers or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village, and hamlet church-yard in the land. In this observance no form of ceremony is prescribed, but posts and comrades will in their own way arrange such fitting services and testimonials of respect as circumstances may permit.
.
Today is the one day on the American calendar meant to exemplify what it costs to be American and to be free.
