Memorial Day has been observed on the final Monday in May each year since 1971, but this occasion traces its roots back much farther in our country’s history. Originally known as Decoration Day, this day was first established during the Civil War in 1862 and was marked by loved ones decorating the graves of those who gave their lives serving in the Confederate Army. After the war, in 1868, the veterans of the Union Army soon added their own traditions to the mix, eventually leading to the creation of the ceremonies and customs we know today.

Memorial Day 2017

Today, Memorial Day is the more somber counterpart of Veterans Day. It is a day set aside to honor and remember those who have given their lives while serving in the military. It’s appropriate to mark this occasion by visiting cemeteries and war memorials, honoring their sacrifice.

This day holds special meaning for us at Kraft Technology Group LLC. We will be closed Memorial Day to honor the memory of all those who have gone before, and have given their lives for us. If you have to work, please take a moment to honor their memory.
