Memorial Day is a holiday that many look forward to for barbecues, enjoying a three day weekend, and having a cold one but that’s not what it’s all about.⠀
Enjoy your weekend but just remember the men and women who selflessly gave their lives for each one of us. These photos are from Ford Island, Hawaii on a field that was once a runway in WWII. Each boot represents a man or women who gave the ultimate sacrifice, we owe it to them and their families to acknowledge their heroism. It’s really an honor to be able to pay our respects. ⠀
Memorial Day was once known as Decoration Day. It originated a few years following the Civil War and became an official national holiday in 1971. 🇺🇸✨⠀
