Memorial Day honors fallen heroes.

United States flags decorate the tomb of a U.S. serviceman on Friday (May 27) in Greenwood Cemetery. Memorial Day (May 31), which began as Decoration Day in 1868 to recognize fallen soldiers of the Civil War, is celebrated across the country to honor and remind us of those who have died while serving in all branches of the U.S. armed forces.
