Every year, on Memorial Day, we remember the people who have lost their lives while serving in the United States armed forces. Over the last few centuries, millions of brave men and women have lost their lives fighting to protect our country and its freedoms. Today, we remember those lives.
We do not know them ALL— but we OWE them all!
FACT: From 1868 until 1970, Memorial Day was observed annually on May 30th before being changed to the last Monday of May.
