Memorial Day Remembered

I can remember…that the last Monday in May (May 25) is Memorial Day. Some will remember that the third Saturday in May is Armed Forces Day. Add to your list to remember that Congress has passed a resolution that the nation observes May as a NATIONAL MILITARY APPRECIATION MONTH. “… all people of the U. S., localities, organizations and media are called upon to annually observe the month with appropriate ceremonies and activities.” The culmination of the month, indeed, is Memorial Day, which traditionally has marked the recognition of those who have died in service to the nation. Also, on Memorial Day, remember to observe one minute of silence at 3 p.m. local time “to honor the military’s fallen comrades and to pay tribute to the sacrifices by the nation’s service members and veterans.” Don’t forget!!
