Memorial Day

“Memorial Day”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana 


Memorial Day is a holiday that we use to commemorate US men and women who have died in military service to our country.





Joseph Lee


When the last voyage is ended,

And the last sail is furled,

When the last blast is weathered,

And the last bolt is hurled,

And there comes no more the sound of the old ship bell-

Sailor, sleep well!



When the last Post is blown,

And the last volley fired,

When the last sod is thrown,

And the last Foe retired,

And thy last bivouac is made under the ground-

Soldier, sleep sound!
