What Memorial Day is All About

Tomorrow is Memorial Day here in the United States. Memorial Day is always on the last Monday in May. It is a federal holiday, so most places are closed and a lot of people have the day off. But that isn't what the day is about.
Memorial Day is a day to remember all of those brave men and women who served in the Armed Forces that have left us. The flag is flown at half staff from noon until sunset in honor of their contribution and loss.
So while everyone is enjoying time with their friends and family tomorrow, take a minute to remember all of the wonderful people that have already passed on who served our country.


  1. My people cousin and his Boy Scout troop put 20,000 flags at a military cemetery near where they live. Mom and I thought that was pretty cool.

    Happy Blog Hopping!

  2. Yes, Memorial Day is about our fallen soldiers - not picnics and swimming and BBQ. Our culture has taken a day of national mourning and turned it into a celebration for a long weekend.
