History of National Forget Me Not Day
Judge Robert S. Marx created the National Forget Me Not Day to support the wounded returning soldier’s who need long care after the war was over. At the time of 1921, there were only a few services and organizations were existed to provide the support and care that the veterans (Wounded Soldiers returning from war) were required. Hence Marx created the Forget-Me-Not Day to remind the country of their sacrifices and to raise funds for the disabled soldiers through the sale of forget-me-nots. The Forget-Me-Not flower stands as the symbol for National Forget Me Not Day. It grows in open, rocky places and the mountain areas of Alaska. A similar holiday called Forget Me Not Days was celebrated in New Zealand every June 5 and June 6 since 2003. It was started by two bank insurance to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Association.
