Happy Decoration Day Weekend

From Wikipedia.com:

Memorial Day is a
United States Federal Holiday observed on the last Monday of May. It was formerly known as Decoration Day. This holiday commemorates U.S. men and women who have died in military service to their country. It began first to honor Union soldiers who died during the American Civil War. After World War I, it was expanded to include those who died in any war or military action.

Enjoy your Memorial Day weekend, and don't forget to honor the soldiers of the past by thanking the soldiers of your now (and future).

Enjoy & In Joy
