A three day weekend? The start of summer? Parades and backyard barbeques? The opening of public swimming pools? You can finally start wearing white shoes again?
Memorial Day was once a sacred day of remembrance to honor those who paid the ultimate price for our freedoms. Businesses closed for the day. Towns held parades honoring the fallen, the parade routes often times ending at a local cemetery, where Memorial Day speeches were given and prayers offered. Time was spent that day to clean and decorate with flowers and flags the graves of those that fell in service.
Please join Residex as we recognize and honor servicemen and women who have died to protect our freedom. Please post the name and the era of their loss in the comments section of this post.
The Remembrance Wall will be updated with posts honoring the memory of soldiers.
