Show Your Patriotism This Memorial Day 2015
Monday May 25th is Memorial Day 2015. This is a time of year where many friends and families come together in remembrance for those who have died in service of your great nation, the United States of America. What better time to pay respect to our fallen heroes and show your Patriotism by stocking up on your USA gear.
Originally called ‘Decoration Day’, Memorial Day was officially proclaimed on May 5th, 1868 by General Logan (national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic) “The 30th of may 1868, is designated for the purpose of strewing with flowers, or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village and hamlet churchyard in the land.” This date was specifically chosen as it was separate from any particular battle with the intent to honor all American who died fighting in any war. Memorial Day is now officially observed as a Federal Holiday on the last Monday in May each year.
