Dear Debbie,
 
If this is the first edition of the MarineParents.com Newsletter you have received, WELCOME! If you are a returning reader we are glad you have joined us.
 
Though Memorial Day has become a day to remember all of our loved ones who have died, the original intent was to honor those who died defending our country.  The following is an excerpt of the orders from 1868:

"It is the purpose of the Commander in Chief to inaugurate this observance with the hope that it will be kept up from year to year, while a survivor of the war remains to honor the memory of his departed comrades."

This Memorial Day, help to reaffirm the original intent by giving honor to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Take a moment to remember the families who have experienced this loss; let them know you have not forgotten their loved one.  
 
Traditionally, a national moment of remembrance takes place at 3 p.m. Eastern Time.  The United States Flag should be flown at half mast from dawn until noon local time.
