Happy Memorial Day

Memorial Day

Officially observed on Monday, May 31, 2010

Memorial Day, which is observed on the last Monday of May, commemorates the men and women who died while in the military service.  In observance of the holiday, many people visit cemeteries and memorials, and volunteers often place American flags on each grave site at national cemeteries.  A national moment of remembrance takes place at 3:00 p.m. local time.

 

Where ever you go or whatever you do this weekend, have fun! I'm heading to Seward
