Memorial Day, a United States Federal holiday, is observed each year on the last Monday in May.

This year, it will be observed on May 29th.

 

And it’s coming up this weekend.

But before bringing out the plastic cups, paper plates, and burgers for the the grill- take some time this weekend to honor everyone who has died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.

 

There are several ways to remember those Americans:

 

• Display your American flag.

• Attend a Memorial Day parade – The parade in Washington D.C.
is the nation’s largest Memorial Day event –

• Visit a battlefield –The Battle of Gettysburg was a turning point in
the Civil War; fought at the local Gettysburg National Military Park –

• Go to a memorial service organized by a veterans group.

• Observe the National Moment of Remembrance at 3:00pm on
Memorial Day.

• Share photos and memories of your friends and family who have
fallen in battle.
