"Across the country this Memorial Day, families will enjoy backyard barbecues, pool parties, picnics or long-weekend road trips. For some, Memorial Day represents the official start of summer, and school children everywhere welcome it as a sign of another school year coming to a close.

The real meaning of Memorial Day, though, is to remember and honor those men and women of the armed forces who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country and for our freedom. Originally called Decoration Day for the tradition of placing flowers or flags on the graves of fallen soldiers, the Memorial Day holiday dates back to the American Civil War."


Thank you Palm Mortuary, for being our valued customer.

Arlington Cemetery

"Memorial Day became an official federal holiday in 1971, formally known as Decoration Day. It now falls on the last Monday in May. Today, members of the Old Guard decorate the graves at Arlington National Cemetery with small American flags on the Thursday before Memorial Day. In only four hours, Old Guard service members plant flags in front of approximately 280,000 headstones and the bottom of about 7,000 niche (for cremated remains) rows. This is a tradition that has been in place since 1948."
