Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in service of the United States of America. The National Moment of Remembrance encourages all Americans to pause wherever they are at 3 p.m. local time on Memorial Day for a minute of silence to remember and honor those who have died in service to the nation.
Over the long Memorial Day weekend, many Americans thank those who’ve served by getting together with friends and family, watching parades, toast the unofficial beginning of summer, drink copious amounts of beer, and stuff their faces with grilled meats.
However you choose to celebrate, be safe and please remember those who have died in service to our country as well as the families left behind.
