Memorial Day is this Monday so I thought I would write about what it means to all of us.
Memorial Day in the United States is a time to remember the men and women who have died while serving our country’s armed forces. Originally known as Decoration Day after the American Civil War, it was established as a time for the nation to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers. By the 20th century the name changed to Memorial Day. It typically also marks the start of summer vacation.
Whether you are traveling or spending time with family and friends take some time to thank those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for the freedom we enjoy today.
Are you looking for a vacation home in the mountains?
