Memorial Day 2015

Hawii grave

A young woman in Hawaii places flowers at the graves of fallen US servicemen sometime during the 1940s.  This photo from the archives of PT Boats, Inc., perfectly reflects the dignity and solemnity of Memorial Day.

We pause on this special holiday to remember the men and women of the US Armed Forces who gave their lives in service to our country.  Try to carve out some time this Memorial Day to observe a few moments of silence in honor of the sacrifice of these fellow citizens who made the ultimate sacrifice for all of us.

Have a safe and happy holiday!
