Tattoos Honoring The Memory Of US Soldiers
Memorial Day was first observed on May 5, 1868, and was referred to as Decoration Day. It was at first meant to honor those who sacrificed and died in the Civil War. In 1968, Memorial Day was officially acknowledged on the last Monday in May, and was reserved as a day to honor and show our respect for those who have passed away in service to the United States.
“These Endured All And Gave All That Justice Among Nations Might Prevail and That Mankind Might Enjoy Freedom and Inherit Peace.” – Inscription on the memorial at the American Cemetery overlooking Omaha Beach.
Let’s honor and celebrate the memory of our fallen soldiers!
On this Memorial Day, we honor the sacrifices of prior generations. We honor the sacrifices of the men and women next door who have actually served or remain to serve our country. And we promise never to forget the true definition of Memorial Day. We would not have the privilege of commemorating this day and honoring many memories without the sacrifices of those who offered their last full measure of commitment.
