Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday which occurs every year on the final Monday of May.[1] Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.[2] 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.[

In honor of my father n law, who served during  World War II, I like to decorate the mantel with his picture, flag and certificate for service signed by Richard Nixon. I pull in other Patriotic pieces from my collection to coordinate and compliment the Red, White and Blue theme. It is a great teaching tool with the kids and grandkids. It is an opportunity to reflect on the lives of so many men and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice and service to our country.

We are free today because so many have given so much.

The display is personal to Cooper, the photo is signed to Christine, yours always,Cooper

The original Pearl larger beer actually belonged to Cooper and my husband has kept the unopened can as a remembrance.

Lady Liberty stands guard and Old Glory is proudly displayed.

So today as you fly your American Flag, say a thank you and remember all those who died for the sake of our freedom!

Happy Decorating y’all,

Becky
