Memorial Day 2021

Memorial Day is often regarded as the unofficial ‘beginning of summer;’ a time for parties, travel, picnics, and other social events spanning the long weekend many of us enjoy each year at the end of May. From all of us here at Backcountry Journeys, we do hope that you enjoyed your weekend.

We also hope that you were able to take the time to recognize the true reason for this holiday. Memorial Day, observed each year on the last Monday of May, honors the men and women who have died while serving in the U.S. military. 

Honoring fallen service members dates back to just after the Civil War. Folks across the United States began holding tributes to the fallen soldiers, decorating graves with flowers, and reciting prayers. Decoration Day, as it was first known, was recognized each spring. Memorial Day did not become an official federal holiday until 1971. 

Today we hope that you’ll help us honor those brave men and women who have given all for our country.
