Summer is coming! Memorial Day marks the start of the summer vacation season and many businesses promote Memorial Day sales with red, white and blue. While people are enjoying the long holiday weekend, let us also take a moment to remember that the Memorial Day is also a time to honor family members and others who have died in military service while serving our country and ensuring our freedom.
On Memorial Day, the U.S. flag is raised to the top and then slowly lowered to the half-mast position. It is raised again at noon, to full-staff, to show America's resolve that those who died in service did not do so in vain.
