Honoring Those Who Gave All - Memorial Day 2019

Monday, May 27, 2019 was Memorial Day. Parades and programs honored those who sacrificed their lives for their country.

The holiday was long known as Decoration Day, for the practice of decorating graves with flowers, wreaths, and flags. It wasn't until 1967 that federal law declared "Memorial Day" the official name.
