During this month our hearts are full of sympathy, pride, tender thoughts and condolences to our fallen heroes. We rise up in gratitude to all women and men who have given their lives for their country and us.
Today, the Big Dog family joins the celebrations and invites everyone to gather up in tribute and honor the American Heroes who died during Military Services.
Formerly known as Decoration Day, it was originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the war. By the 20th century, Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who died while in the military service. It typically marks the start of the summer vacation season, while Labor Day marks its end.
On the first Decoration Day, General James Garfield made a speech at Arlington National Cemetery, and 5,000 participants decorated the graves of the 20,000 Union and Confederate soldiers buried there.
Memorial Day’s celebrations are wide and different. Some people visit cemeteries and memorials, particularly to honor those who have been killed in military service. Many volunteers place an American flag on each grave in national cemeteries.
At Big Dog Wraps and Graphics you can show your pride and honor our heroes with cool, patriotic designs. We can wrap your car, motorcycle, truck, boat or business windows with the National Emblem, flags, classic military logos, eagles, anything that you can imagine and you feel represents our peace and freedom.
Once your ride bursts in patriotism and you are cruising the streets, everyone around you will fall and catch that American spirit.
