Memorial Day 2018

Memorial Day

Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May. Formerly known as Decoration Day, it commemorates U.S. men and women who died while in the military service. First enacted to honor Union soldiers of the American Civil War (it is celebrated near the day of reunification after the civil war), it was expanded after World War I to include American casualties of any war or military action.

“TCU salutes everyone in the armed forces and we honor those who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom”
~ Bob Scardelletti

Have a safe Memorial Day Weekend!
