CW 150: Memorial Day

In 1970, Memorial Day became a federal holiday on the last Monday in May and now most people are not even sure what the holiday is about because it is the unofficial first day of summer. First, don't tell a soldier, "Happy Memorial Day," that would be in poor taste. Second, it is about the soldiers who "gave their last full measure" for their country. Third, it started as a random remembrance day following the Civil War. Before this, there was only the 4th of July as a "national" holiday.
