Memorial Day, also called Decoration Day, is a patriotic holiday in the United States. It is a day to honor Americans who gave their lives for their country. Originally, Memorial Day honored military personnel who died in the Civil War (1861-1865). The holiday now also honors those who died in any war while serving the United States.
A soldier is a nobody, we here lots of people say.
We admit there are bad ones from the Army to the Marines,
Most people condemn the soldier when he stops to take a drink or two,
Now don't scorn the soldier but clasp him by the hand,
picks its soldier from the million far and wide,
When a soldier goes to battle you cheer him on the way,
But the hardest battle of the soldier is in the time of peace,
With these few lines we close sir, we hope we don't offend
