Memorial Day is Monday, May 28. Are you ready to remember and honor the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military? In the years following the Civil War, it was known as Decoration Day and became a federal holiday in 1971.
The National Moment of Remembrance, established by Congress, asks Americans, wherever they are at 3 p.m. local time on Memorial Day, to pause in an act of national unity for a duration of one minute.
Many of us observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, having parties and participating in or watching parades.
Memorial Day marks the beginning of the Summer Season!
I hope your Memorial Day is a Great One!
