In 1873, New York was the first state to designate Memorial Day as a legal holiday. Celebrated the last Monday in May, Memorial Day recognizes the tremendous sacrifice of the many young men and women who lost their lives in service to our country.
This coming Monday, May 27, 2019, let us all pause and reflect on the freedoms we share today due to the heroics of these many brave souls.
Also, keep in your thoughts and prayers all those who are presently serving in active duty across the globe. Honor the sacrifices these men and women make every day, and those of their families who stand with them in service to our freedoms.
