Throughout American history, men and women have loved out country so deeply they were willing to give everything to preserve its safety and freedom.
Memorial Day was first observed as Decoration Day in May 1868. Though the name has changed, the day still reminds Americans to reflect on the sacrifice and honor of those who gave their lives in defense of the country. On the last Monday in May, our nation honors the selfless heroes who gave their lives to defend the land we love and the freedoms we believe everyone deserves.
This and everyday, the Sauk family remembers our men and women in the armed services, here and around the world.
