So, today’s Memorial Day here in The States, where we remember our fallen servicemen, who gave their lives for our freedom. Apparently, the holiday got started on July 4, 1864 when ladies decorated soldiers' graves in Boalsburg, Pennsylvania, calling themselves the birthplace of Memorial Day. From 1868 to 1970, Memorial Day was on May 30th. President Nixon made it an official Federal holiday in ’71, moving it to the last Monday in May.
From us to you servicemen and women around the world, thank you.
Be good to each other.
