When we think of Memorial Day, we think of picnics, barbecues and a day off with friends of family. The holiday signifies the beginning of summer and the end of the school year, it’s a day of rest but also of reflection of those who have served in the various branches of the military.
“Memorial Day is an American holiday, observed on the last Monday of May, honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, holding family gatherings and participating in parades. Unofficially, it marks the beginning of the summer season.” – History.com
