During a patching ceremony, soldiers from Wisconsin and Utah Army National Guard and U.S. Army Reserve placed Velco-backed ‘Old Abe’ patches on their upper left sleeves marking another milestone in Screaming Eagle history.

The ceremony represents one of the many transformations in the Army.

A look at the History of Memorial Day

 

U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs

U.S. Department of Veterans AffairsWashington, D.C. – On May 5th, 1868, three years after the Civil War ended, the head of an organization of Union veterans — the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) — established Decoration Day as a time for the nation to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers. Maj. Gen. John A. Logan declared that Decoration Day should be observed on May 30th.

It is believed that date was chosen because flowers would be in bloom all over the country.

The first large observance was held that year at Arlington National Cemetery, across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C.
