Memorial Day Recognition/Prayer Service – Tomorrow – Monday May 31st – 10:00 a.m.: Tomorrow, Father Steve is inviting all to join him at the Rose Hill Cemetery, U.S. Route 40, just east of Clear Spring at 10:00 a.m. This year, for Memorial Day, Father Steve will offer prayers at the burial site for the first person from Washington County (and probably the first Marylander) to die in WWII. This person was Joseph C. Herbert, a Clear Spring native. Staff Sergeant Herbert was a gunner for the Army Air Corps and was killed during the attack on Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941. Please park near the back of the cemetery in the grass field area.
Did You Know: Memorial Day was originally called “Decoration Day” to observe those killed during the Civil War. However, after more wars, Memorial Day observed all from the following wars who died in service to the Country. Memorial Day was observed for a long time on May 30th., however, in 1969, Congress passed the Uniform Monday Holiday Act, which established Memorial Day as the last Monday in May in order to create a three-day weekend for federal employees. The change went in effect in 1971. The same law also made Memorial Day a federal holiday. Memorial Day is set aside to honor only those military personnel who died in the performance of their military duties while serving in the Armed Forces.
