For Memorial day.

Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May (May 25 in 2009). Formerly known as Decoration Day, it commemorates U.S. men and women who died while in the military service. First enacted to honor Union soldiers of the American Civil War (it is celebrated near the day of reunification after the civil war), it was expanded after World War I to include American casualties of any war or military action.

  1. Great post for Memorial Day Mike! I also just noticed your picture of the Cleveland Skyline – it\’s beautiful!

  2. I took a walk through my hometown cemetery where my father (a veteran of both the Korean and Vietnam war) is buried and said thank you not to just to him but to the other veterans in that cemetery with him. They range from the Revolutionary War to the Vietnam War and I am working on a special post for them that I will have up on Memorial Day. Thank you, Mike, for your service and may you have a great weekend!
