Remember Decoration Day

Decoration Day was officially proclaimed on May 5, 1868 by General John Logan in his General Order No. 11 to honor the Union soldiers who died during the Civil War, and was first officially observed on May 30, 1868.

Since we invaded Iraq on March 20, 2003:

2470 U.S. service members killed.

18184 U.S. service members wounded.

"W" is still for War.
