Engelman Berger Wishes you a Safe and Reflective Memorial Day

Engelman Berger would like to wish you a safe and reflective Memorial Day. We hope you enjoy the holiday weekend and also hope that you have a chance to pause and remember the more than 1.3 million Americans who have died while serving in our country’s armed forces.

Memorial Day is a national American holiday that honors the men and women in the U.S. military who lost their lives serving our country. Memorial Day was first known as “Decoration Day” and was established a few years after the Civil War. It became an official federal holiday in 1971. Many individuals, families, friends, etc. visit cemeteries or memorials to honor those who served but did not come home alive.
