Remembering The Fallen This Memorial Day 2014
As many of us prepare to use the three-day weekend to take a road trip, enjoy an outdoor barbecue or just chill and enjoy the fact that we have an extra day off this week, we should also stop and consider the deeper and true meaning of Memorial Day. Memorial Day is an American holiday observed on the last Monday of May that honors men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, holding family gatherings and participating in parades. it also unofficially at least marks the beginning of summer for us in the USA. The National Moment of Remembrance encourages all Americans to pause wherever they are at 3 p.m. local time on Memorial Day for a minute of silence to remember and honor those who have died in service to the nation. Brothers Performance will be closed this Monday May 26th in rememberance of Memorial day and the staff will observe and remember the fallen service men and women of the United States Armed Forces at 3pm to thank them for their ultimate sacrifice so we can live in the land of the free. We would also like to remind everyone about the service men and women who have been injured and severley disabled in combat and battle.
Brothers Performance support the Wounded Warriors Project.
