In Memoriam

Our assembly this Sunday, In Memoriam, focuses on remembering the women and men who have given their lives in service to the Republic during the 83 wars or other conflicts involving the United States.  Over one and a half million people have died.   It is easy to forget events that have happened “over there” which is why Americans began honoring the fallen shortly after the civil war.  Strange that Memorial Day was not declared a federal holiday until 1971.
