Memorial Day 2012

                       Let us pause to honor those who have died for this great country of ours.

          Memorial Day was originally called Decoration Day.  Decoration Day was instituted in 1868 to honor the Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the Civil War.   In 1882, the name was changed to Memorial Day to honor all United States soldiers who died in service to our country.       
Have a great weekend!
