Presidential Quotes


President’s Day originally began as the day to commemorate Washington’s birthday. It has now become a day to honor Presidents Washington and Lincoln as well as the Office of the President of the United Sates. In 1932, the date was used to reinstate the Purple Heart military decoration. Created by George Washington, the Purple Heart honors soldiers killed or wounded while serving our country. The founder of our country understood the importance of a life well-lived in service to others.
