Your real courage shows best in the hour of adversity. – Napoleon Hill
Well it may be Memorial Day but it is also the last day of the 3 day weekend for most people. I received the pictures you see in the slide show in an email and thought I would pass them on for everyone to enjoy on Memorial Day.
General John Logan of the Grand Army of the Republic, was the person to officially proclaimed Memorial Day. This day was first observed on May 30, 1868, when flowers were placed on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery. After WWI the holiday changed from honoring just those who died fighting in the Civil War, to honoring Americans who died fighting in any war.
Don’t forget to remember the heroes of this country, who without them, you wouldn’t be free!
