Tribute To Memorial Day

We Pay Tribute To Our Fallen Heroes

Memorial Day is an American holiday, observed on the last Monday of May, honoring the men and women who served their life on the line of duty. In December of 2000, President Bill Clinton signed “The National Moment of Remembrance Act” into law to ensure that the sacrifices of America’s fallen heroes are never forgotten. The law requires all Americans to observe a minute of silence at 3 p.m. on Memorial Day to commemorate and respect those who have died in the service of the country. Let us recognize the sacrifices made for us: This day is meant to honor not just the heroic military members who have given the ultimate sacrifice, but also to honor family members.
