It’s almost Memorial Day, and Smoky Mountain Beards would like to take the opportunity to remember all of the men and women who have lost their lives serving in the armed forces.
Why Memorial Day Matters
Memorial Day is a national day of remembrance for fallen soldiers. Memorial Day was originally known as Decoration Day. At the time, the Civil War was one of the deadliest wars in America’s history.
In response, communities across the nation started grassroots efforts that involved various ways of remembering the fallen. Many of these local observances involved putting flowers and other decorations on the graves of soldiers.
These traditions continued on into the modern era, and Memorial Day was officially recognized as a federal holiday back in 1971. Today, we continue to take time on Memorial Day to remember those who lost their lives in war.
