Memorial Day is a time to remember those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice defending America. Check out these inspirational Bible sayings about what the Word of God says about grieving for a soldier.
During Memorial Day, many people visit cemeteries and memorials dedicated those who have died in military service. Volunteers also place American flags on graves in national cemeteries. Memorial Day should not be confused with Veterans Day, which occurs on November 11 and honors the service of all U.S. military veterans.
Memorial Day is always the last Monday in May. Learn more about the history of Memorial Day here!
