Happy Memorial Day 2017

Memorial Day: is a federal holiday in the United States for remembering the people who died while serving in the country’s armed forces. The holiday is currently observed every year on the last Monday of May. It marks the unofficial start of the American summer vacation season, while Labor Day marks its unofficial end.

Many people visit cemeteries and memorials, particularly to honor those who have died in military service. Some Americans visit the graves of family members who did not serve in the military. Many volunteers place an American flag on each grave in national cemeteries.

Memorial Day is not to be confused with Veterans Day; Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving, while Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans.
