Monday, May 25th is Memorial Day this year and it is often the day that marks the beginning of summer. It features parades, picnics, family gatherings and other activities that cause many to forget the purpose of the day. Memorial Day is to honor all Americans who died while in the military service. For many Americans, the central event is attending one of the thousands of parades held on Memorial Day in large and small cities all over the country. Most of these feature marching bands and an overall military theme with the National Guard and other servicemen participating along with veterans and military vehicles from various wars.
Wallace & Graham is a law firm that has helped veterans and their families since its inception. The firm is extremely proud to employee and have within its ranks a number of Military Veterans from just about every branch of service. These Veteran employees bring with them not only their excellent pedigree of having proudly served but the experience, dedication and willingness to continue their service in the private sector. They continue to fight for justice for the men, women and families of the United States of America.
Memorial Day, originally Decoration Day, began during the Civil War with the decoration of the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the conflict. In the subsequent 150-plus years, the day has been expanded to include all of our wars and conflicts. Salisbury, NC is a special town and community. It is home to the Salisbury National Cemetery which is not only the final resting place of men and women who have served and given the ultimate sacrifice but a place rich in history. We always encourage people to go and visit as it is a special place in American history.
Let us not forget, as members of this great nation, that Memorial Day is the day where we all pause and remember the brave men and women who put on the uniform of our armed forces, who put themselves in harm’s way so that we could sleep safely in our homes at night, and who died in the service of our nation.
On Monday, May 25, please take a minute out of your day to remember all of the fallen soldiers who paid a price that we can never fully repay. The people of Wallace & Graham give great thanks and heart felt accolades to the great Women and Men who have served this great country and who help the Firm seek justice every day for it clients.
