Memorial Day is a holiday in the United States that is dedicated to honoring and remembering the men and women who have died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration Day, the holiday began after the Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who lost their lives in battle. Today, Memorial Day has been expanded to honor all American servicemen and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
The observance of Memorial Day is marked by a variety of traditions and ceremonies, such as parades, wreath-laying ceremonies, and the playing of Taps at military funerals. Memorial day has also become a time to spend with families and friends to celebrate our gift of freedom. We asked our owners, Missy & Greg Manuel about the Memorial Day Holiday, check out what they said!
"We want to wish you a Happy Memorial Day! Memorial day is a special time for Greg! Having served in Vietnam as a helicopter pilot, this day holds a special place in his heart. During his time there he saw many men risk and lose their lives defending our great country. He possesses a Purple Heart from his experiences there. Greg reflects on his return to the country and says, “ you learn to appreciate the simple things like coming home at the end of a long day or driving your own car at will!”
Greg and Missy plan to spend this holiday in deep gratitude for the freedom they are blessed to walk in daily! We want to encourage you to take this holiday to spend time with those close to your heart and create special memories!"
As we celebrate Memorial Day, let us honor the memory of those who gave their lives in service to our country. Let us also remember the families and loved ones they left behind, and offer them our support and thanks for their sacrifices as well.
