Memorial Day is a federal holiday observed annually in the United States on the last Monday of May remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. It started as Decoration Day, during the Civil War to commemorate the fallen Union soldiers of the Civil War.

One of the early celebrations of Decoration Day came in 1865 when African Americans who had just been liberated from slavery marched in Charleston South Carolina to honor Union soldiers who had died at a nearby Prisoner of War camp…

Here’ to mark Memorial Day today are three Vietnam War veterans—Gene Jones, president of Florida Veterans for Common Sense, Michael Burns, the vice president of Florida Vetrans for Common Sense, and Dennis Plews who is a founding member of FLVCS and the husband of Eve Prang Plews who hosts a program here on WMNF every other Monday.
