Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May. Formerly known as Decoration Day, it commemorates U.S. men and women who died while in military service. First enacted to honor Union soldiers of the American Civil War (it is celebrated near the day of reunification after the civil war), it was expanded after World War I to include American casualties of any war or military action.
“During this global crisis, it becomes ever more important to acknowledge those that are making extraordinary sacrifices around us,” said TCU President Bob Scardelletti. “I especially want to take a moment to express our gratitude to the TCU members that we lost to this pandemic and to those working on the frontlines, you are heroes to us all!”
“TCU salutes everyone in the armed forces and we honor those who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom”

Have a safe Memorial Day Weekend!
