Remembering “Decoration Day”

  1. flag and flowers on grave for memorial day

“Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid. They have earned our undying gratitude. America will never forget their sacrifices.” – President Harry S. Truman

Before breaking out the shorts, flip flops, and grill for an eventful Memorial Day weekend – we should all take a little time to remember what it is exactly we are celebrating. Dating back to the American Civil War when it was known as “Decoration Day,” the practice of placing flowers on the graves of fallen soldiers is not only done in remembrance of the men and women who have served in the United States Armed Forces, but also to honor the freedom in which they upheld.

The Mission Mechanical team honors our fallen heroes, and wishes everyone a happy Memorial Day.

Sincerely,

The Arbuckle Family
and the entire Mission Mechanical Team
