Memorial Day

Take time this May 25 to honor the brave men and women who have perished while serving our nation both here and abroad. Originally known as Decoration Day, Memorial Day originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971.

The Civil War claimed more lives than any conflict in U.S. history, requiring the establishment of the country’s first national cemeteries. By the late 1860s Americans in various towns and cities had begun holding springtime tributes to these countless fallen soldiers, decorating their graves with flowers and reciting prayers.

Today, many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, holding family gatherings and participating in parades. Enjoy this unofficial first day of summer, but also take a moment at 3pm local time to remember our fallen, and participate in the national moment of remembrance.





A Survivor's Story

Survivor Angela Powell-Woulfe tells her story of how she overcame adversity after her father, a Michigan Army National Guardsman, made the choice to end his life. Her powerful story serves as a beacon for others to connect to as she has been courageous enough to share her story of how she fought through the tragedy of suicide to become a remarkable survivor.
