Manny P. here…civil war

   As you celebrate a well-deserved day off, remember our soldiers active in duty endure to preserve our freedom. Our fallen military from previous campaigns should also never be forgotten for the defense of this country.

   I remind my readers – Memorial Day was established after the Civil War to honor the Union and Confederate dead who battled for what they believed in. Originally called Decoration Day, the holiday was expanded after World War I. In 1971, Congress made the last Monday in May to ensure a three-day holiday, and unofficial start of Summer.MemDayLogo

   Ironton, Ohio lays claim to the nation’s oldest continuously running Memorial Day parade. It’s been an annual tradition since May 5, 1868. And, Memorial Day is a holiday which thankfully most businesses observe.

   A peaceful Memorial Day to one and all…

Until next time…                “never forget…our men in uniform”
