As all of your already know, Monday was Memorial Day and even though we posted about it on our facebook page and sent out prayers, positive thoughts and appreciation to those who have served our country bravely we thought it was a good idea to blog about it as well! At Battery Giant PGH we’re all about getting involved in the community and making a difference in the lives of others. We’re into paying it forward and giving back while teaching people about the importance of going green and getting the most out of their batteries. We like being involved, staying in touch and giving Thanks to those that have given so much to our country and it’s people. We want to let you know that we’re all about celebrating our countries Heroes all year-long and not just for a day out of the year. For us, Memorial Day isn’t only about the barbecue and a day off work but rather about sending out a heartfelt THANKS to all of those who have selflessly served in the past, are serving now and to those who will serve tomorrow. In an effort to show our THANKS all year-long we offer a 5% sales discount on any purchase to all Military, Veterans, Police, Fire, EMS and Retirees.
In the United States, Memorial Day is always celebrated on the last Monday of May. It was formally known as Decoration Day is a day of remembrance for those men and women who have died in our nation’s service. Many people visit cemeteries and memorials on Memorial Day and it is traditionally seen as the start of the summer season. Memorial Day was established by a General Order issued by the national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic. It was first observed on May 30, 1868, when flowers were placed on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery. But the solemnity of the occasion has steadily abated in recent times. It is now seen as the beginning of summer….celebrated with parades and picnics and fun and games and three-day sales.
We certainly haven’t forgotten the meaning of Memorial Day and we hope you join us in celebrating and honoring our heroes all year-long!
