Memorial day honors veterans

Please take the time this weekend to remember and reflect on why we have a long holiday weekend. Memorial day honors veterans through out history who have paid the ultimate price for freedom. We also urge everyone to think safety over the long weekend as we hit the roads and waterways to spend time with family and friends.   Don't drink and drive, and always wear seatbelts.

Memorial Day or Decoration Day is a federal holiday here in the United States for remembering the people who died while serving in the country's armed forces.The holiday, which is currently observed every year on the last Monday of May, will be held on May 28, 2018. The holiday was held on May 30 from 1868 to 1970. It marks the unofficial start of the summer vacation season,while Labor Day marks its end. The holiday, from latest to earliest, is slightly more likely to fall on May 30, May 28 or May 25 (58 in 400 years each) than on May 27 or May 26 (57), and slightly less likely to occur on May 31 or May 29 (56).

Many people visit cemeteries and memorials, particularly to honor those who have died in military service. Many volunteers place an American flag on each grave in national cemeteries.

Memorial Day is not to be confused with Veterans Day – Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving, whereas Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans.It is also not to be confused with Armed Forces Day, a minor U.S. remembrance celebrated earlier in May, which specifically honors those currently serving in the U.S. military.
