Memorial Day 2012

earth energy Solutions Group remembers those that gave their lives for our freedom, dare you imagine if they had not? 

Our friends at Construction DataFax in Alabama summed it up with honor, respect and action…

Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day to remember those who have died in our nation’s service. In 1866, families of these brave heroes decorated their graves in honor of their sacrifices. As our nation grew stronger and war became rampant many heroic men and women paid the ultimate price for our freedom and others around the world. In 1971, Memorial Day was declared a national holiday to be held on the last Monday in May.

Today, Memorial Day marks the unofficial beginning of the summer season in the United States. It is still a time to remember those who have passed on, whether in war or otherwise. It also is a time for families to gather together for picnics, ball games, and other early summer activities.

In May of 2000 Congress passed a “National Moment of Remembrance” to observe each Memorial Day at 3:00 p. m. As you enjoy your summer time activities, please join us in remembering the heroes who have protected our freedom.

It is likely very difficult, if not impossible, for a civilian to imagine the bravery, the duty, the sacrifices and pain our unrelenting Veterans endured.  Give thanks, reflect in silence deep appreciation for your freedom.
