Remembering Our Veterans This Memorial Day

As Memorial Day approaches, we at Morgan & Morgan would like to take a moment to reflect on the true significance of this important holiday. While many of us look forward to the long weekend as a time for barbecues, beach outings, and time spent with family and friends, it's important to remember that Memorial Day is, above all, a time to honor and remember the brave men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country.


Remembering Our Heroes

Memorial Day, originally known as Decoration Day, was established following the Civil War as a day to decorate the graves of fallen soldiers with flowers, flags, and wreaths. It has since evolved into a national day of remembrance, where we pay tribute to the courage, dedication, and selflessness of those who have laid down their lives to protect our freedoms.

At Morgan & Morgan, we are deeply grateful for the sacrifices made by our servicemen and servicewomen. Their bravery and commitment to defending our nation allow us to enjoy the liberties and opportunities we often take for granted. We owe them a debt of gratitude that can never be fully repaid.

A Personal Note

As we enjoy the freedoms and opportunities provided by the sacrifices of our military personnel, let’s also remember to cherish our time with loved ones and appreciate the simple joys of life. Memorial Day is a reminder of the cost of our freedoms, and it is our duty to honor and preserve the legacy of those who have given their lives in service to our nation.

From all of us at Morgan & Morgan, we wish you a meaningful and reflective Memorial Day. Let us never forget the true meaning of this day and the brave souls who have made our way of life possible.
