Originally called Decoration Day - the day dedicated to decoration the graves of the war dead.

Memorial Day was officially announced by the national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic, General John Logan, on 5 May 1868 in his General Order No 11. It was first observed when flowers were placed on the graves of Confederate and Union soldiers in Arlington National Cemetary on 30 May 1968.

 

It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men that died.

Rather we should thank God that such men lived.

~ General George S. Patton

Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice.

Moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.

~ Senator Barry Goldwater

 

They braved the gun smoke that we may breathe in the air of freedom.

They endured the explosions that we may hear the laughs of our loved ones.

They treaded on mines that our feet may be kissed by the soil of a free land.

They forgot to blink that we may see the flag flying high.

They bore the bullets that we suffer not a wound.

They went to sleep that we may have a nice sleep daily.

They died that we may live.

Let us not forget those who fell.....

Come, let us honor the heroes!

 

Originally called Decoration Day, Memorial Day is a day of remembering those who have died in our nation's service.

May is Military Appreciation Month

Military Appreciation Month

May, marked officially as Military Appreciation Month, is a special month for both those in and out of the military.

Not only do we pause on Memorial Day to remember the sacrifice and service of those who gave all, but the month also holds several other military anniversaries and events, including Military Spouse Appreciation Day and Armed Forces day.

Join Military.com as we honor the service and sacrifice of members of the ArmyNavyAir ForceCoast GuardMarines and National Guard as well as the contribution of their spouses.

Congress designated May as National Military Appreciation Month in 1999 to ensure the nation was given the chance to publicly show their appreciation for troops past and present.

 
 

 

I contend that for a nation to try

to tax itself into prosperity is like a   

man standing in a bucket and   

trying to lift himself up by the handle.

-- Winston Churchill

 

 

Many years ago in
Scotland , a new game was invented.. It was ruled 'Gentlemen
Only..Ladies Forbidden'.. .and thus, the word GOLF entered
into the English language.
