Happy Memorial Day. Today we celebrate the lives of the soldiers that have paid the ultimate sacrifice to ensure our American freedom.
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!
