Happy Memorial Day Weekend

I'd like to wish everyone a very safe and happy Memorial Day weekend. Hopefully you'll get to spend some nice quality time with your family and friends. But whatever you're doing, be sure to make it a safe one and a happy one!

Memorial Day, formerly known as Decoration Day, is a United States Federal holiday that is observed on the last Monday of May. Memorial Day commemorates U.S. men and women who've died during military service to their country.

The holiday first began to honor soldiers who had died during the American Civil War. But after World War I it was expanded to include those who've died in any war or military action.
