Memorial Day

Regardless of your religious or political affiliation, regardless of your skin color, and regardless of your educational background, today is a day set aside to celebrate and honor the bravery and sacrifice of the men and women of the armed services who have given their lives fighting for the very freedom that we enjoy each and every day in the United States of America. Happy Memorial Day. God bless America!

Interesting Memorial Day fact:

On Memorial Day, the flag of the United States is raised briskly to the top of the staff and then solemnly lowered to the half-staff position, where it remains only until noon. It is then raised to full-staff for the remainder of the day.
