Homeschool Service Projects, Printable Memorial Day Greeting Cards for Seniors

Memorial Day and 4th of July conjure up images of flags, parades, flowers, soldiers, banners and all that is most beautiful in America. You may not think of Memorial Day as a holiday for sending greeting cards, especially with the high cost of cards and postage. But Remembrance Day (another name for Memorial Day) is a particularly special day for soldiers and the elderly. Senior citizens love patriotic holidays like the 4th of July and Decoration Day (yet another Memorial Day name). They remember with nostalgia the soldiers coming home from overseas, the parades, those loved and lost. Seniors also really enjoy receiving greeting cards. National holidays are bittersweet for relatives of fallen soldiers and for those who served in the armed forces.
