A Day of Remembrance
“Memorial Day is a US federal holiday celebrated every year on the final Monday of May. 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 Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the Civil War. By the 20th century, Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died while in military service.It typically marks the start of the summer vacation season, while Labor Day marks its end.”
The Gypsy Nurse is a proud supporter of our American Military. There are many ways that you can show your support. Consider donating in honor of our nation’s military this year to Fisher House, The USO, or the Wounded Warriors Program.
Please take a moment to remember those that sacrificed their lives for your continued freedoms.
To all those serving and those who have given their lives keeping us free, thank you for your service.
