SSB 5/30/21: Thanks to all that served!


Thanks to all that served!

Memorial Day (previously, but now seldom, called Decoration Day) is a federal holiday in the United States for honoring and mourning the military personnel who have died in the performance of their military duties while serving in the United States Armed Forces

The holiday’s exact origins are uncertain, but it came out of Civil War traditions of decorating the graves of fallen soldiers with flowers. Many cities and individuals claimed to have been the first to celebrate the event. In 1868, General Logan of the Grand Army of the Republic called for a “Decoration Day”, which was widely celebrated. By 1890 every Northern state had adopted it as a holiday. The World Wars turned it into a generalized day of remembrance, instead of just for the Civil War. In 1971, Congress standardized the holiday as “Memorial Day” and changed its observance.

Jancast # 100

Sixteen years later and we are doing Jancast show #100! Mark Warner and I play some clips from past shows and it becomes pretty clear that we were ahead of our time with pathogen control, use of technology, and much more. Listen and watch this great recap of Jancast since the start in 2005.

Have a great day and an even better sales week and Stay Safe!
