Honoring those who answered the call

  Email   Print


Memorial Day was first recognized as Decoration Day. The special observance originated after the Civil War.


Monday, the last Monday in May, is designated as Memorial Day, a federal holiday. However, the weekend is regarded as the first holiday weekend of the summer and the beginning of the summer season.


We urge you to take just a moment during this holiday weekend to remember those who have served in uniform and have given their lives as a result of their service.


And please, too, remember those serving in our military today and ask for a special blessing of protection and guidance for them as they perform their duty, many in harms way.


Have a great holiday weekend. Be safe and enjoy your time with family and friends.
