Happy Memorial Day!

On behalf of everyone at A-1 CAREERS we want to wish all of our customers and employees a very Happy Memorial Day! Most of us learned in grade school that Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States for remembering the people who died while serving in the country’s armed forces. The holiday, which is observed every year on the last Monday of May originated as Decoration Day after the American Civil War in 1868, when the Grand Army of the Republic, an organization of Union veterans founded in Decatur, Illinois, established it as a time for the nation to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers. Ultimately it became known as Memorial Day, which President Nixon established as a federal holiday in 1971.

Over 1 million members of the armed forces have lost their life defending this country and our freedom. I can’t imagine what our country would be like without their sacrifice, but I am certain in would be very different and not for the better. So enjoy the holiday with friends and family, but do take a minute to hang your flag and thank all of those that have made the ultimate sacrifice for the freedom of America!
