A day to Memorialize and Decorate the Graves of all who Have Fallen in Wars,” 05/23/2017

“We do not know one promise these men made, one pledge they gave, one word they spoke; but we do know they summed up and perfected, by one supreme act, the highest virtues of men and citizens. For love of country they accepted death, and thus resolved all doubts, and made immortal their patriotism and their virtue.” – James A. Garfield

“I look at the evolution of it. Memorial Day started out as Decoration Day and that was a day when they were decorating the graves and remembering the fallen of the Civil War. It evolved over the years to be a day to memorialize and decorate the graves of all veterans who have fallen in all wars,” – Commander Dan Hall
