Memorial Day May 27, 2013

Memorial
Day is a patriotic holiday in the United States of America, celebrated on the
last Monday in May.  It is a celebration of remembrance for the brave service of
men and women who gave their lives for their country. Memorial Day was declared
a federal holiday in 1971. We now, designate this day to remember loved ones who
have passed on, as well as remembering our service men and women. Flowers and
flags are placed on graves in remembrance of them. Parades and dedications of
memorials usually are part of the day’s activities. Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts,
local marching bands, members of the armed service, fire departments, police
departments, and fraternal orders often march in parades and attend ceremonies
to commemorate the day.
