Celebrating Memorial Day
Thank You to those who made the Ultimate Sacrifice

Memorial Day has been a federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May (and is often confused with Veterans Day which is another worthy day to celebrate!) since 1971. This is a time that many people visit local and National Cemeteries to honor and unfortunately mourn those who died while serving in the United States Military.

Once known as Decoration Day, and celebrated in 1868, the holiday was announced by Commander in Chief John Logan of the Grand Army of the Republic and was to honor the Union soldiers who died in the Civil War. Although many people and towns have claimed to be the very first to observe the day; the National Cemetery Administration gives credit to Mary Ann Williams. She came up with the idea to place flowers on both Union and Confederate soldiers of the Civil War.

Soon these tributes grew to every city across the United States starting out becoming local celebrations to State holidays, and finally a National Holiday. Memorial Day endures as a holiday which most businesses observe because it marks the unofficial beginning of summer. In 2000, Congress passed the National Moment of Remembrance Act, asking people to stop and remember at 3:00 pm.

So for those of you who are looking to read a story about gambling or how to win real money at the casino; you can visit Safe Online Gaming to find out all you need to know. We just ask that while you are playing your favorite slot, table game or sweepstakes to take a moment to remember those who gave their life for you to enjoy this time. And to those of you who have put on the uniform to defend our freedoms; we thank you for your ultimate gamble!
