Memorial Day May 28

The first documented observance of Memorial Day occurred in Waterloo, New York on May 5, 1866. The purpose of the day was to honor those who fought in the Civil War. It has been expanded since then to honor those who died during each of the wars in which the United States fought.

Public Law 90-363, passed on June 28, 1968, required that beginning in 1971, Memorial Day would be observed on the last Monday in May.

Please take time to say a prayer for all those who have fought and died to preserve our freedom and protect our nation!  We owe them a debt that can never be repaid.
