Flowers have traditionally been laid at the graveside of deceased loved ones, and Memorial Day is no different.

Armed Forces Day  – May 18thRed White and Beautiful

In the United States, Armed Forces Day is celebrated on the third Saturday in May. President Harry S. Truman led the effort to establish a single holiday for citizens to come together and support of our country’s soldiers.

In 1949, Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson announced the creation of an Armed Forces Day to replace separate Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force Days. This decision came after the consolidation of the 5 branches of military services in the U.S. Department of Defense.

Memorial Day – May 27th

Memorial Day is a federal holiday that falls on the last Monday in May.  It is observed as a day for remembering the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. Military. Formerly known as Decoration Day, the holiday began after the Civil War to commemorate the Confederate and Union soldiers who died in battle.

By the 20th century Memorial Day came to honor all Americans who have died in all wars. Take this time to honor family members and loved ones who have fallen by placing patriotic tribute flowers at their final resting place.

What About Veterans?

As Armed Forces Day celebrates active military and Memorial Day honors the fallen, those that have retired from the military have their own special day to be remembered as well. Veteran’s Day is November 11th.

This month, take time to remember that the great strength of our county comes from the collective efforts of military men and women.
Give thanks to our military members for their patriotic service and honor them with beautiful flowers from a real local florist.
