Memorial Day 2013

Memorial Day is the specific day set aside to remember and honor those men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.

The recognition began following the Civil War to commemorate both Union and Confederate soldiers who died during the conflict and was originally known as Decoration Day.

While there are several variations of the origins and first use of the bugle (or trumpet) musical piece, “Taps,” it is this tune that is so closely associated with Memorial Day Services.

A moment of silence for those who gave their lives in the service of their country.

Over For Now.
