Memorial Day Poppies

ABLE Associates wishes all of its friends a wonderful weekend.  While we get together with friends and family over this first of the summer festivities, we must not forget those who have served so well to give us our opportunity to prosper and celebrate.

General John Logan, national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic first declared  a Memorial Day in 1868 in his General Order No. 11.    On 30 May 1868, flowers were placed on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery.
