In 1873, Memorial Day was first officially observed in New York. And by 1890 every state in the Union state had adopted it. After the World Wars, the day became a day to honour all military personnel. In 1971, Congress simplified the day to be on the last Monday of May.

And on this day, May 30th, Roseville honoured their veterans with a wonderfully planned parade. WCSX is honoured and delighted to have been a part of this parade to honour our veterans both at home and abroad. And if you take one thing away from this beautiful day is to say thank you to a veteran for their service.
