Honoring Our Heroes
Custom Framing lets you cherish the memory of your favorite Hero
What makes someone a Hero? Courage? Strength? Talent?
Heroes come in all sizes and shapes and are all around us. Firefighters, police officers, and soldiers selflessly perform their jobs without thinking about the danger involved. Maybe your grandpa was a war veteran, or your daughter is active military. Show them they will always be in your heart by transforming their picture into a framed display.
Did You Know?
- Memorial Day, formerly known as Decoration Day, began in 1864 when women decorated the graves of those who died in Gettysburg. The tradition continued after the Civil War in which 620,000 soldiers died. On May 5, 1868, it became a national holiday. In 1971 the date was changed to the last Monday in May.
- President Ulysses S. Grant presided over the first Memorial Day ceremony on May 30, 1868 at Arlington National Cemetery with 5,000 people in attendance.
- Today, 1,200 soldiers place flags on 260,000 graves at Arlington Cemetery every Memorial Day
- It is customary to fly the flag at half-staff until noon on Memorial Day, and then raise it until sunset.
