Memorial Day Volunteers

Memorial Day, May 25, 2015 commemorates those that died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.  It was originally named "Decoration Day," in 1868 by the Union's Grand Army of the Republic after the American Civil War.  However by the 20th century, Union and Confederate veteran holiday traditions merged and Memorial Day was established to honor all Americans who died while in the military service.  Memorial Day is also accepted as an unofficial marker designating the beginning of summer.

During the Memorial Day holiday weekend, America witnesses thousands of Americans volunteering their time to various humanitarian causes. 

In South Dakota, volunteers from across the state have gathered in the city of Delmont to help clean up the damage recently caused by a tornado according to Keloland Television

The Atlantic shares a story on the nonprofit Team Rubicon. They redeploy military veterans as disaster-relief volunteers and helps them find meaningful uses for their skills. Team Rubicon is currently en route to Kathmandu to access the damage due to the recent Earthquake.

The Oakland Press shares a story on volunteers that rebuilt a veteran's home.  Volunteers from Rebuilding Together Oakland County and the Sears Heroes at Home program completely renovated Micheal Caloni’s, a two tour Vietnam vet, home on West Woodward Heights, California as part of their efforts to help those in need.
