And here are a couple Memorial Day Weekend reminders:
While Memorial Day Weekend is the unofficial start to summer, Memorial Day is a day of reflection and remembrance. Dedicated to millions of men and women who answered the call and laid down their lives defending our freedoms.
🇺🇸Flags are flown at half-staff until noon and then will be raised to the top of the flag staff at noon local time.🕛🇺🇸
Originally known as decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. President Clinton established a National Moment of Remembrance for a full minute at 3pm local time on Memorial Day for reflection for fallen service men and women. 🕒🇺🇸
Parades come with great tradition and unlike celebratory parades, a Memorial Day parade this is a solemn, peaceful event – there typically is no sirens with emergency vehicles.
Have a safe and peaceful Memorial Day Weekend!
