A Salute to Memorial Day!

BJ Bounds

A big Thank You to all of our current and former members of our armed forces!

Memorial Day as we know it is a relatively new holiday.  Some of you may remember before 1971, when it was celebrated on May 30, and not the last Monday of May.  When the Uniformed Holidays Bill was enacted, three holidays: Washington’s Birthday, Veterans Day and Memorial Day were combined into one.

The pride I feel for our armed forces is almost indescribable.  I hope that all of you who serve now or who have served feel what must certainly be emanating from your screen from my keyboard.

No matter what branch you represent, or whether you are active or reserve, you have my upmost respect and admiration.


As a reminder, Calyx will be closed on Monday to celebrate Memorial Day.
