Most people associate Memorial Day with the beginning of summer vacation, a day off of work, backyard barbecues and celebrations with family and friends. We must remember that Memorial Day is a special day to honor our veterans who served in the US Armed Forces. The holiday began after the Civil War, and was originally named “Decoration Day.” While initially founded to honor the soldiers who died in the Civil War, today Memorial Day honors all Americans who have served or died in military service.
Many of us living in the Washington, D.C. area have deep connections to the military. We all know someone who has honorably served our country overseas in uniform. Today we take a moment to remember all those who we have lost, and to be grateful for the sacrifice that they made for the good of America as a whole. We at Mid-Atlantic Builders and everyone throughout the country are deeply appreciative.
On behalf of the entire Mid-Atlantic Builders’ family, we would like to take a moment to remember the brave members of our armed forces who had their lives cut short in an effort to protect our country. Thank you and Happy Memorial Day!
