While Memorial Day might traditionally mark the beginning of the Summer Season for vacationers, it is also an important day of remembrance for the United States. Every year, we remember everyone who has died in the service of our country.
Established in the wake of the Civil War, Memorial Day was set aside as a day of remembrance for both Union and Confederate soldiers who had died in the conflict. However, as time went on, Memorial Day was extended in order to honor all Americans who had died in armed conflicts since the Civil War.
We are proud of all of Carolina’s students and their family members who gave their lives in service to their country.
Do you remember anyone special on Memorial Day?
