Vets imageVeterans Corner ... Memorial Day will be Monday, May 25, 2015. This day honors all servicemembers who died while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. Originally known as Decoration Day, the observance dates to the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. On Memorial Day, we can honor those who served and died in numerous ways but honor them we should. One method is by properly displaying the American Flag. On Memorial Day the flag should be flown at half-staff from sunrise until noon only, then raised briskly to the top of the staff until sunset, in honor of the nation’s battle heroes.
