Solemn Soldiers

Originally known as Decoration Day, as Americans would decorate graves of Civil War soldiers and celebrated on 5/30, Memorial Day became an official national holiday, and its date was changed to the last Monday in May effective 1971. This year, 37.1 million Americans will travel, up from 23.1 million last year, down from the record 42.8 million in 2019. Thank you to those who gave their lives for our freedom.
