Memorial Day

Memo­r­i­al Day is a day of remem­ber­ing the men and women who died while serv­ing in the Unit­ed States Armed Forces.

For­mer­ly known as Dec­o­ra­tion Day, it orig­i­nat­ed after the Amer­i­can Civ­il War to com­mem­o­rate the fall­en Union sol­diers of the Civ­il War. By the 20th cen­tu­ry Memo­r­i­al Day had been extend­ed to hon­or all Amer­i­cans who have died in all wars.

Today on Radio Riel we remem­ber all those who have brave­ly fought in wars and bat­tles.  Let us hope that one day Memo­r­i­al Day will be a time of remem­ber­ing not only those who fought but the end of all wars.
