Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, began shortly after the end of the Civil War. The day was set aside to honor and decorate fallen soldiers’ graves. After World War I and II, Memorial Day became a day to recognize and remember all of America’s fallen soldiers and the sacrifices they have made for their country. In 1987 the government officially recognized the third monday in May as Memorial Day.

So this Memorial Day, thank a military member for their service. In the meantime, here is the one of the first Images that came up when I Googled “America”:
