Memorial Day isn’t just the unofficial beginning of summer, it’s a time to remember the sacrifice that many brave men and women made to ensure the freedom you enjoy today. This year Memorial Day falls on Monday the 28th, and we’ve got a way to help you remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. We also have a discount code available!
Memorial Day is meant as a day to remember those who died while serving; not to be confused with Veteran’s Day which celebrates all US veterans. The practice of placing flowers on soldiers graves is an ancient custom, but Memorial Day really took off after the Civil War. With over half a million Americans dying in one conflict, a lot of people from both the North and the South felt the need to memorialize their fallen loved one. It is tradition to visit cemeteries and memorials to pay respects to those who how died and to place an American Flag on each grave in national cemeteries.
Due to the change of Memorial Day to the last Monday of May, making it a long weekend many have only started to think of Memorial Day just as that, forgetting its importance. Don’t treat this Memorial Day as just a long weekend. Think of the real reason you are free from work while barbecuing in the sun with your family. Take a moment to not only think back through generations of your own family but also those of the people in your community. You are free because of those that fought so you didn’t have it. Whether you are a Republican or Democrat, a pacifist or serving yourself, there is no reason not to remember those who gave their lives.
Considering the importance of such a day and the importance of remembering those who serve - past, present, and future - we created some designs you can use to show your support for the military and honor those who died. Whether it’s supporting your son who is a Marine, remembering your grandfather who died in the Navy during World War II, or you chasing your dream of joining the Army, we created four designs just for you. Our four designs feature each of the four seals of the branches of the military (Air Force, Army, Marines, Navy) on a background of the American Flag. We also have a silhouette of a soldier standing at attention or saluting to represent those who died while in service as well as those who are currently serving. These designs are free for you to use if you decide to print them on a case, or you can also upload your own photos of lost loved ones or current serving members. Anything is possible.
