Memorial Day a Day of Remembrance

memorial day written in the blank space of a heart sign made with the hands patterned with the colors and the stars of the United States flag

Memorial Day honors men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971.

Let us give thanks to our fallen, for the freedom and bounty we have; And to their families who lost so much.

With Much Appreciation and Gratitude,
The Staff of COPIA Granola
