Memorial Day is the day when Americans remember those members of our armed forces who have died while serving our country. The holiday began as Decoration Day in 1868, after the Civil War. After World One, the American Legion adopted the Poppy as its official symbol of remembrance and since then, volunteers have distributed paper poppies to the public to be worn on Memorial Day in honor of those who died serving America.
Memorial Day is not to be confused with Veterans Day, which is the day we celebrate the service of all veterans, alive and dead. It is customary to fly the flag at half mast until noon and also to observe a minute of silence at 3 p.m. local time.
From all the staff at Shoot Indoors, we thank all our military veterans for their service and we wish our customers a happy Memorial Day
