Memorial Day

I found this at Wikipedia:

Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May. Formerly known as Decoration Day, it commemorates U.S. Service Members who died while in the military service. First enacted by formerly enslaved African-Americans to honor Union soldiers of the American Civil War – it was extended after World War I to honor Americans who have died in all wars.

Whatever you may be doing this Memorial Day, I hope you'll take some time out to remember those who've fought and died in the service of our country.
