    Memorial Day

     

    Veterans and Families of fallen soldiers gathered to honor the service men of the United States armed force at the Garden of Remembrance in Seattle, Washington.  Members of the families placed flowers next the wall that names were engraved to remember those how fought and were killed in the Iraq-Afghanistan War.  Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May. Memorial Day 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.  May 25, 2009 Photo by Daniel Dreifuss
