I hope you are able to take some time today to spend with your families and remember the U.S. men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. There are a number of ways to commemorate these men and women and a few traditional ways of observance include: 

  • Visiting Cemeteries and Placing Flowers
  • Visiting Memorials
  • Flying the U.S. Flag Half-staff until noon
  • Participate in the National Moment of Remembrance to be held today at 5:00 p.m.

Memorial Day has also become a day to celebrate the unofficial beginning of summer with family and friends by attending:

  • Family Gatherings
  • Picnics
  • Sporting Events

However you decide to spend this Memorial Day, I hope it is a safe and healthy holiday for you and your families.
