Comment For The Day
Memorial Day was established when women mourning their Civil War dead decorated the graves in cemeteries throughout the South. It was first celebrated on May 30, 1868, at Arlington National Cemetery. In 1971, Memorial Day was celebrated on the last Monday in May.
It gives tribute to the American soldiers who lost their lives in the following wars: 4,435 American Revolution; 2,260 War of 1812; approximately 1,000 Indian Wars; 13,283 Mexican War; 498,332 Civil War; 2,446 Spanish-American War; 116,516 World War I; 405,399 World War II, 54,246 Korea War; 90,220 Vietnam War; 1,948 Desert Shield/Desert Storm; 4,422 Operation Iraqi Freedom; 66 Operation New Dawn; and 2,220 Operation Enduring Freedom. This amounts to 1,196,793 total war casualties, with more than 300,000 of whom are buried at Arlington National Cemetery in Washington, D.C. An average of 28 burials occur each weekday at Arlington; 6,900 annually.
God bless America and God bless all who hold true to faith in God, faith in the Founding Fathers, and those who strengthen us today.
