All the best to you and your memories and also to those forgotten or who have no family to remember them perhaps here and on foreign fields. .

The energy behind Memorial Day in the United States of America is of recognizing and remembering those who had died while serving in wars for this country. It became a united effort out of different locations in this nation after our Civil War in the mid 1800's and recognized as a legal holiday soon after.
