Memorial Day 2013

Memorial Day 2013

Here in the United States, today,May 27, 2013, is Memorial Day also known as Decoration Day (that’s what I grew up calling it).  It is a day set aside to honor those men and women who died while in the military service.

Many members of GeneaBloggers have posted moving and heart-felt tributes to those family members and ancestors who not only died in service but also served their country.  Please take a moment to read the stories of these men and women who have kept us free.
