For those in the U.S., I hope you are having a terrific Memorial Day Weekend. For those outside the U.S., remember us when you have a Bank Holiday and we don’t.

Memorial Day began in the U.S. as a holiday to remember those who had died in the Civil War, from both sides of the conflict. It was later extended to honor all soldiers who have died while in the military, regardless of which conflict cost them their lives.
