Memorial Day is a special holiday that is celebrated every year. Though many of us may think of those we have lost every single day for one day an entire country stops to celebrate the lives of fallen soldiers.
Did you know?
Memorial day was not always referred to as Memorial Day. Originally the holiday was in fact known as Decoration Day. The day was referred to as Decoration Day because it was not a specific day of any battle.
What do people do on Memorial Day?
When Memorial Day comes many families plan trips, bbq or go and visit those they have lost at cemeteries or gravesites. Often times those that we celebrate on this special day may be people we never knew. You may choose to celebrate continuous improvement masters like those on our Masters of Lean and Six Sigma page or you may have someone close to you that served in a military capacity at some point in their life. Whichever category you fall into please know that many of the improvements today are a result of those brave individuals. Though some veterans may never have heard the words:
lean, six sigma or continuous improvement let it be known on this day the most appropriate word for you to share is: Thank You.
