Memorial Day 2011

Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May. It commemorates U.S. soldiers who died while in the military service. At first it's purpose was to honor Union soldiers of the American Civil War. It was extended after World War I to honor Americans who have died in all wars.  While my family has not lost our soldiers, I do want to honor my brother and sister, who have both made the decision to serve our country.
