This coming Monday is an American holiday called Memorial Day. We often have picnics or times with family on that day, which is fun! We want you to know that Memorial Day is a day set aside to Remember Those Who Served. It is a day to remember the men and women who bravely gave their life serving our country in all wars. Many people mark Memorial Day by visiting graveyards and war monuments. One of the biggest Memorial Day traditions is for the President or Vice President to give a speech and lay a wreath on soldiers' graves in the largest national cemetery, Arlington National Cemetery, in Virginia. Most towns have local Memorial Day celebrations. Here are some ways you can honor the men and women who serve our country:
- Put flags or flowers on the graves of men and women who served in wars.
- Fly the U.S. flag at half-staff until noon.
- Visit monuments dedicated to soldiers, sailors and marines.
- Participate in a National Moment of Remembrance & Prayer at 3 p.m. on Memorial Day.
Remember no school Monday!
Have a great 3 day weekend!
God bless America and…Go Eagles!
