Memorial Day and Quilts of Honor

Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday which occurs every year on the final Monday of May.Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. Formerly known as Decoration Day, it originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the Civil War. By the 20th century, Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died while in the military service.

Quilts of Honor - The mission of Quilts of Honor is to bestow a universal symbol and token of thanks, solace and remembrance to those who serve in harm's way to protect and defend our lives and freedoms.

This weekend we honor our fallen...and through Quilts of Honor we will honor those
that survived with a few bumps along the way.




Until next time...

Be Kind...
