Memorial Day 2020

Memorial Day 2020

Honor, Remember, Never Forget

Each year on Memorial Day Americans pause to remember the fallen and honor their sacrifice. McKeown’s Heating and Air Services also pauses to remembers the sacrifice of members of the United States Army, Air Force, Coast Guard, Marine Corps and Navy who sacrificed all.

Memorial Day History

First established as Decoration Day after the Civil War, the holiday was set aside for families and friends to visit and decorate the graves of troops lost in the conflict. As time went on, the observance instead became known as “Memorial Day,” until 1971, when Congress declared it an official holiday set to fall annually on the last Monday in May.

We urge all Americans to take the time to remember those who scarified all for the freedoms you have today.
