American Flag Series #3

Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May (May 25 in 2009). Formerly known as Decoration Day, it commemorates U.S. men and women who died while in the military service. First enacted to honor Union soldiers of the American Civil War (it is celebrated near the day of reunification after the civil war), it was expanded after World War I to include American casualties of any war or military action.

  1. I love, love, love this photo. I'm installing a fence in my front yard at the moment, and was thinking about what type of "Beware of Dog" sign I wanted to paint. This is so beautiful. Great shot!


So nice to hear from you!

Warm regards,
